Although this adds a bit of precision and flexibility, it leads to laundry lists in the ebuild, especially if/when we start getting more rigorous about prefixification. The attached eclass provides eprefixify_patch, which simply prefixifies the patch itself before applying.
Feels dirty too ;)

What I'm using it /for/ is a more interesting question that I'd like to bring up in a separate, presumably more controversial thread. Anyhow, for the moment I thought these might come in handy or at least precipitate an interesting flamewar :)
I fail to see how this is necessary. Portage already fixes those/these shebangs, doesn't it? Fabian -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo on a different level
