Subject: [gentoo-dev] emerge optional
Date: Tue, 29 Jan 2002 16:41:35
1 I know when you emerge it will read USE= and compile in options if it is in
2 your USE=. Is there plans to add the ability to have optional packages?
3 ex. gentoo xine requires libdvdcss. What if you don't want it. Could
4 future emerge prompt for option libs that aren't installed. In the above if
5 it is already installed use it, if not prompt the user. I could see this
6 could supplement the USE= for rare libraries or even replace it.
