Basically agreed, but shouldn't this better be done in main tree, because otherways we would need to touch those ebuilds anyway, even when we have such a function? The function itself needs to be more flexible in regards of specifying what to move (the actual lib name, should $(get_libname) be used in the function or in the ebuild). Haven't searched main-tree if such moves are only done from /usr/$(get_libdir) to /$(get_libdir) or from somewhere else too. /haubi/ -- Michael Haubenwallner Gentoo on a different level
