Subject: binutils default-ppc-1.0/packages - mackage.mask collision
Date: Wed Jun 12 23:33:02 2002
Ok, I noticed a problem with binutils:

beta profiles # emerge -u world --pretend

These are the packages that I would merge, in order.

Calculating world dependencies -
!!! Error: couldn't find match for sys-devel/binutils in update (likely
old /var/db/pkg entry)

----------------------
So, I did some looking, and I noticed in 
/usr/portage/profiles/default-ppc-1.0/packages, line 36:

# arrrrggg someone in x86 land unmsked a non working on ppc binutils
build
# Gerk - June 12 2002
>=sys-devel/binutils-2.12.90.0.9

----------------------
But then at the top of package.mask:

=sys-devel/binutils-2.12.90.0.9

----------------------
So, for kicks, I unmaked binutils, and I get:

>>> emerge sys-devel/binutils-2.12.90.0.9 to /
>>> md5 ;-) binutils-2.12.90.0.9.tar.bz2
 * 
 * Please do not use this release of binutils, as it
 * is very buggy (cannot even compile glibc)!!!
 * 


So, I'm wondering whats up with binutils.  Portage is effectively saying
that there are no appropriate versions of binutils to install for the
ppc (2.12.90.0.9 is the most recent ebuild).
