The gentoo "way" in this case is revdep-rebuild, and you've already stated that your servers do not have a compiler. You need to either expose the linkage dependencies outside the binpkg, or introspect it when you're about to install it to find that it's NOT going to work. zmedico/portage folk: Can we have a phase during binpkg install, that lets us check ELF linkages before the files get moving to ${ROOT}? -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Developer, Trustee & Infrastructure Lead E-Mail : robbat2@g.o GnuPG FP : 11AC BA4F 4778 E3F6 E4ED F38E B27B 944E 3488 4E85
