9 I forgot to add the bug-link:
13 There you can find at least my rough estimates of how many ebuilds
14 are directly affected. Shortly saying, if we fix PMS, we need to fix,
15 say, 200 ebuilds. If we leave it as is, we have around 1750 obviously
16 broken ebuilds + over 3000 if we count DESTDIR=${D}. Not to mention all
17 the hidden issues.
