9 You don't need to modify the ebuild to do that. Put this
10 in /etc/portage/env/category/package
12 post_src_unpack() {
13 cd "${S}"
14 epatch_user
15 }
17 You can use unpack or prepare. The difference is that the former runs
18 immediately before the prepare function in the ebuild, the latter
19 immediately after. Not only does it save manifesting the ebuild each time
20 you modify it, it saves having the remember to modify it at all after an
21 update. More importantly, your work is not destroyed on the next sync.
