5 There is another problem with PDEPEND that I've run into: if you are
6 doing an emerge that fails some time after the package containing the
7 PDEPEND builds but *before* the depended-on package builds successfully,
8 the dependency will not be "remembered" as needed on the next emerge
9 (unless you do a resume, of course). So, basically, the dependency gets
10 forgotten. The new behavior discussed here makes this scenario less
11 likely but does not eliminate it.
