Subject: [gentoo-dev] hardcoded PATHS in .ebuild

In hacking a few .ebuild, i noticed that most .ebuilds have paths to
where Gnome, Mozilla, etc is hardcoded ?!?

Now I know that it is not everyday that they change, but since the base
location for many packages will be changed now, cant it be done
correctly this time ?  In other words rather use defined variables that
should be defined when the base package is installed (like KDEDIR,
MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME, etc) since the base package should already have been
merged when you get to subpackages ....

Some suggestions/reasons would be appreciated.
