12 The hint given by Alastair did it mostly. Two additional variables in
13 src_install() did the rest.
15 Before reporting this ebuild to I would like to know how
16 long the "normal" period is between reporting a new ebuild and finding
17 this ebuild in the portage tree (or getting any other response)- another
18 ebuild was added on 05/31/03
19 ( but since then not much
20 happened...
22 IMO creating or reporting ebuilds which perhaps are only helpful here
23 doesn't make much sense.
