Efforts might be best spent on the modular xorg ebuilds, as I'm sure the gentoo xorg maintainers will want to ditch the monolithic ebuilds at some point down the road...although there might be too much voodoo in getting etc. installed properly for the gentoo xorg maintainers to stomach, so perhaps xorg-darwin is a possibility...

Hopefully the progressive profile will be deprecated eventually.
Not sure what gave you that idea...its the only profile for OS X I find useful :p I know a few others are using it as well. Its basically the proving ground for the portage base-system packages. Its also whats used for Darwin development, as building Darwin system packages requires a heavily modified OS X environment. I don't plan on deprecating it at all, if you feel strongly otherwise, maybe you should split the profiles up (again) and let the collision-protect profiles that install packages to / (non-prefixed) live in profiles/ default-macos and leave profiles/default-darwin for, well, darwin. --Kito -- gentoo-osx@g.o mailing list
