I know that this option exist, but I must either download busybox by
myself, make menuconfig by myself and copy it to the right location by
myself or ebuild unpack and do the rest by myself. It look pretty much
as a patch to me, cause portage cant handle packages that has to be user
configured before compile time.
What I want is "emerge busybox uclibc vanilla-sources nano". Should
unpack only the 3 first packages, show me busybox menuconfig, uclibc
menuconfig and vanilla-sources menuconfig and only then perform the rest
of the installation as usual (without re-unpacking the 3 packages). And
save the configs for futur use. So if my configs does not fit my need,
re-emerging busybox with USE=savedconfig should get me the busybox
menuconfig back using the previously configured ".config".
But anyway, the question is not whether the idea is good or not, but how
to get a menuconfig that works within ebuild.sh (called from spawn in
portage_exec ... called from the user with ebuild or emerge)?
