Subject: [gentoo-desktop] kde-sunset + $PATCHES

hi everybody,

i am one of the maintainers of the kde-sunset overlay.

It seems there is something wrong with a couple of ebuilds or the kde-eclass.
It looks like for apps like amarok or kaffeine PATCHES (as specified in the 
ebuild) are not being applied.
I noticed this with amarok, as i got compilation errors because of libmp4*, 
and there was already the correct patch specified on $PATCHES, but not 

Using epatch works fine, but seems not to be the preferred way?
Could maybe one of the other maintainers have a look at it, and tell me if i 
am completely wrong or PATCHES is not applied to amarok/kaffeine/kplayer...?

Lost interest?  It's so bad I've lost apathy.
