13 Ran into the same problem, with my sister's PC. Which I had updated from
14 remote, so I did not see the elogs. I do not think it is correct
15 behaviour to continue building udev although the system wouldn't boot
16 with that kernel option missing. I would expect the udev ebuild to check
17 the running kernel for that option, and refuse to build until it has it
18 set. Or until building is forced by some USE flag or an environment
19 variable.
21 Had these things not been handled better in the past?
