17 The usual place is src_prepare().
18
19 I have prepared some patches from the Xfce repository with line
20 addressing to match the Gentoo sources tarball. I attach a tarball of
21 theses patches that can be untarred in /etc/portage/patches/. The
22 ebuild should have the following lines added:
23
24 src_prepare() {
25 epatch_user
26 }
27
28 Don't forget to redo the manifest for the ebuild.
