1 several ebuilds which use sed break. People are using this method:
3 sed "//" Makefile | cat > Makefile, whereby they are sed and cat on same
4 file. I understand this works for some people, but others (e.g. me), it
5 doesn't, and ends up with a blank Makefile (or other sedded file, e.g. what
6 happened with abiword).
8 Quick example ebuilds breaking:
9 bubblemon, wmfishtime, bbapm, bbkeys, bbppp, bbrun, bbsload, etc etc etc.
11 I don't understand why this works for some and not for others; is it an
12 issue of system performance?
