7 I don't think packages other then baselayout should mess with
8 /etc/services. In general, two packages can "own" same file, if they
9 provide similar functionality, i.e. they are virtual [I know it's not
10 always true right now, but this should be].
11 In this case, IMO, the proper way to do it is to add the new entry to
12 the /etc/services from baselayout [this new entry should be there
13 anyway, no matter if cyrus is installed], and add DEPEND to the new
14 baselayout version in the cyrus-imapd.ebuild.
