Thanks. I ended up doing it this way, though with only one loop in src_install(), which seems to be a bit more efficient and shorter: LANGUAGES="de" for i in ${LANGUAGES}; do IUSE="${IUSE} linguas_${i}" done src_install() #... insinto "${GAMES_DATADIR}/${PN}/i18n" for i in ${LANGUAGES}; do if has ${i} ${LINGUAS}; then doins "${PN}_${i}.qm" || die #... fi done In this case, LANGUAGES must not include "en" though, since there's no ${PN}_en.qm file (English is built-in). I'm not sure if the following would be better though, in case a user puts linguas_<language> in USE instead of <language> in LINGUAS: if has linguas_${i} ${USE}; then But I suppose it would be the user's fault if he/she does that? :P
