5 d's an experimental patch. Why is it the only version in portage?

9 Seems a shame to have an ebuild only for a version that is well-known as
10 broken ...
12 Especially as your ebuild for NS-2 installs the version of NS, and
13 (unless I've missed it in the ebuild) doesn't include the patch to make NS-2

19 libs-compat fixes that for me just fine, at least with + boffix.
21 I also noticed that Metamod is built from source. HLDS (which is a C++
22 program) is very sensitive to which version of GCC is used to build Metamod
23 (and Metamods), and most people find it seg faults most of the time when
24 compiled from source. It might be worth adding an ebuild for the binary
25 release of Metamod - or talk to Will Day (metamod's author) to discuss which
26 GCC & CXXFLAGS are likely to bring the most success.
28 I'd also be very interested in seeing HLDS support the +vhosts scheme we've
29 been discussing about webapps.
