Subject: [gentoo-user] revdep-rebuild ignoring SEARCH_DIRS_MASK

Has anybody else noticed that revdep-rebuild recently started to
ignore SEARCH_DIRS_MASK?

I have it set thusly in make.conf

  SEARCH_DIRS_MASK="/usr/lib/digilent/waveforms"

and that used to prevent revdep-rebuild from reinstalling
sci-electronics/digilent-waveforms every time (it's a binary install
that has it's own version of a bunch of shared libraries).  

Sometime in past month or so, revdep-rebuild started to reinstall it
every time despite the SEARCH_DIRS_MASK.  AFAICT, the layout of the
waveforms package hasn't changed.  When I add --verbose to the revdep
rebuild, all of the files that trigger the reinstall appear to be
under the masked directory.
