Convoluted? That would be my cue :-p I'll assume that the darwin profile has prefix /, with no special PATH, while the "portage for os x/second class citizen" profile gets prefix (say) /opt/gentoo, and PATH prepended with /opt/gentoo/bin:/opt/gentoo/... [1]. Now, if an ebuild needs to know that it has "2nd class" status, wouldn't a use flag be appropriate? And if you were to implement such a use flag, could it not be useful to other second-class citizens? For example, in "portage for non-Gentoo Linux" or "portage for solaris" profiles. -f [1] On reflection, I agree with grobian. I don't think it makes sense to try and support an appended PATH (though it may be useful for some as an unsupported option.)
