Hi guys,

I'm trying to enhance the mapserver ebuild to support building no CGI at 
all. The software can be built as extension for many programming 
languages and a CGI is not strictly necessary.

It was suggested in #gentoo-web on freenode that I should use the 'cgi' 
USE flag for this purpose. I wrapped all calls to webapp functionality 
with `if use cgi` or an equivalent, but then I'm getting at the very end 
of the build process:

| >>> Original instance of package unmerged safely.
|  * 
|  * This ebuild did not call webapp_src_install() at the end
|  * of the src_install() function
|  * 
|  * Please log a bug on
|  * 
|  * You should use emerge -C to remove this package, as the
|  * installation is incomplete
|  * 
| !!! ERROR: sci-geosciences/mapserver-4.10.0 failed.
| Call stack:
|, line 1595:   Called qa_call 'pkg_postinst'
|   environment, line 4827:   Called pkg_postinst
|, line 1304:   Called webapp_pkg_postinst
|   webapp.eclass, line 462:   Called die
| !!! Ebuild did not call webapp_src_install() - report to

| !!! A complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/sci-geosciences/mapserver-4.10.0/temp/build.log'.
| !!! FAILED postinst: 1
| !!! This ebuild is from an overlay: '/home/dirk/overlay'

When I do run the webapp_src_install() function, I get at the end:

|  * Running //usr/sbin/webapp-config -I -h localhost -u root -d /mapserver mapserver 4.10.0
|  * Fatal error: Your configuration file sets the server type "Apache"
|  * Fatal error: but the corresponding package does not seem to be installed!
|  * Fatal error: Please "emerge >=net-www/apache-1.3" or correct your settings.
|  * Fatal error(s) - aborting
|   * Running //usr/sbin/webapp-cleaner -p -C mapserver

The only solution I have found so far is to wrap 'inherit webapp' with
`use cgi` everything works, but then my ebuild gets rejected, because
that would prevent metacaching as was pointed out to me at bugzilla.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
