12 This message does not come from portage or the ebuild. It comes from
13 the kde-base build system....everybody who extracts the kdebase
14 sources and runs "make -f Makefile.cvs" will see this.

21 Not sure what you mean....the message looks perfectly harmless to me.
22 It is basicallly a message to the KDE developers working on the 3.5.2
23 release (and early adopters using the CVS version) that that specific
24 makefile would go away at release time. Now, I do not know why it
25 *didn't* go away...after all 3.5.2 is released but the file is still
26 there. But the message itself seems innocuous.
