Subject: [gentoo-alt] USB support in prefix?
Date: Thu, 12 Feb 2009 17:06:03

I want to port media-libs/libgphoto2 to prefix-gentoo. The problem is 
that dev-libs/libusb is not working on solaris. I've helped myself 
with writing --with-libusb=/usr/sfw in the libgphoto2 ebuild - but 
this is less portable then libusb.
How should this be solved?
- Platform depend dependencies (is this possible at all)?
- patching the libusb ebuild so that on solaris it creates links to 
the solaris libusb instead of compiling it?
- use the usb USE flag on libgphoto2 so it can be used on systems 
without libusb?
