I'm not sure what's causing this, given the changes in how the prefix portage tree and the main ditto are synchronised. In the main tree I've got media-gfx/xfig-3.2.5b-r2, whereas in the prefix the latest version is 3.2.5b. This is important because the latter doesn't have the necessary patches to build with libpng-1.5. Enlightenment, anyone?
