13 Hopefully your manually-installed version was installed to /usr/local
14 and the ebuild version will be installed to /usr ... once the ebuild
15 is installed, check out the files list and then manually delete those
16 same files from the /usr/local hierarchy. That's what I would do
17 anyway :) If you did not install the original to /usr/local then yeah
18 I think just having it overwrite the files should be okay in this
19 case.
