Subject: [gentoo-dev] How do I insert a custom ebuild?

1 This looks like I must be making things harder than they are.
3 RTFM is fine, just please point me to the right section of the appropriate
4 FM.
6 I'm trying to add the foomatic ebuild from to my local
7 portage tree. I have paid attention the last few times I emerged portage
8 and am using PORTDIR_OVERLAY with portage 2.0.40. I've created
9 ${PORTDIR_OVERLAY}/net-print/foomatic/ and copied
10 foomatic-2.0-current.ebuild into that directory.
12 emerge foomatic gives me:
14 saruman local.portage # emerge foomatic
15 Calculating dependencies portage: visible(): None is an invalid
16 cat/pkg-v string. Aborting processing.
18 How do I fix this? I've tried the gentoo FAQ, the Portage Guide and
19 Manual, and the Developers Guide to no avail - if it's there I am just not
20 getting it.
