Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] Does 2.1 retain eclass info in binpkgs?

1 I'm doing some testing of the latest eselect-compiler for eradicator,
2 involving merging and unmerging gcc. He has made some recent changes to
3 toolchain.eclass that are supposed to help it work with eselect-compiler,
4 and that's what I'm trying to test. Obviously, gcc is a rather huge
5 package to go thru the entire merge every time just to test a bit of the
6 post-merge compiler selection script, and AFAIK, while the ebuild is
7 stored with the binpkg, and both the ebuild and dependent classes are
8 stored in the merged package database, merging a binpkg still uses the
9 current in-tree eclasses. That's what I'm hoping, anyway.
11 Is that a true summation or does portage 2.1 now retain build-time eclasses
12 in the binpkg, rather than using those in the tree, when merging the
13 binpkg?
