|parent||Add @rebuilt-binaries set which uses BUILD_TIME to pull in binary packages (diff)|
Add a --rebuilt-binaries[=n] option, causing automatic replacement of
installed packages with binary packages that have been rebuilt. Rebuilds are detected by comparison of BUILD_TIME package metadata. This option is enabled automatically when using binary packages, so rebuilt binaries are installed with a user's typical update command. This isn't possible with the existing @rebuild-binaries package set since that only works with --selective=n and therefore can't be used with a typical world update. The package set framework should support this type of behavior sometime in the future. svn path=/main/trunk/; revision=15364
