Subject: [gentoo-dev] env pollution
Date: Sun, 05 Feb 2006 17:22:15
1 I have two bugs [1][2] with installs failing due to some environmental
2 variables being set, which end up overriding the settings in the
3 packages' makefiles, causing sandbox violations. While this is a simple
4 enough to work around with some unsets, how much do we really want to
5 work to fix polluted environments? I can't help but think that is not
6 my bug, but instead (apparently) kth-krb's fault for polluting the env
7 (the vars are seemingly worthless man and info pages paths).
