I thought this mailing list was the proper place for that :)

yeah - that slipped by as it's just a copy from my local overlay and I didn't 
want to bother with masking/unmasking my own packages.

couldn't remember if cp -pr takes care of existing directories (on some 
systems it doesn't (like FBSD)) but tar always produces same result. Not sure 
if it's worth changing for portablity sake.

yeah, that part was inherited from previous developer and I didn't really 
bother to check since it was working fine for me on amd64.

yeah, there was plenty of feedback :) it's all polished now. I'll submit r5 
now with your suggestions implemented hoping it'll go into portage soon.
