5 Similar problem as with Tuan's version: It's intransparent to the user and he
6 has no choice, unless he looks into the ebuild. || ( foo bar ) is only an
7 option, if you have two packages providing the same functionality, but a
8 virtual is not in order. On the other hand, if the scm support is not a core
9 functionality of the application, I'd refrain from adding these optional
10 runtime dependencies and simply add a post install message instead.
