This isn't right. There's no guarantee at all for pkg_pretend, for
It's also wrong to go by "files installed by the ebuild". Think, for
example, a package which installs nothing but that creates a user.
I also dislike the "rebooted" phrasing for PDEPEND. "Before the package
manager finishes the group of installs" is better.
