proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H. Johnson <> X-Thanks: Alec Warner <> - did the GSoC 2006 migration tests X-Thanks: Robin H. Johnson <> - infra guy, herding this project X-Thanks: Nguyen Thai Ngoc Duy <> - Former Gentoo developer, wrote Git features for the migration X-Thanks: Brian Harring <> - wrote much python to improve cvs2svn X-Thanks: Rich Freeman <> - validation scripts X-Thanks: Patrick Lauer <> - Gentoo dev, running new 2014 work in migration X-Thanks: Michał Górny <> - scripts, QA, nagging X-Thanks: All of other Gentoo developers - many ideas and lots of paint on the bikeshed

+# $Header: $
+# NOTE: The comments in this file are for instruction and documentation.
+# They're not meant to appear with your final, production ebuild. Please
+# remember to remove them before submitting or committing your ebuild. That
+# doesn't mean you can't add your own comments though.
+# The 'Header' on the third line should just be left alone. When your ebuild
+# will be committed to cvs, the details on that line will be automatically
+# generated to contain the correct data.
+# The EAPI variable tells the ebuild format in use.
+# Defaults to 0 if not specified.
+# It is suggested that you use the latest EAPI approved by the Council.
+# The PMS contains specifications for all EAPIs. Eclasses will test for this
+# variable if they need to use EAPI > 0 features.
+# inherit lists eclasses to inherit functions from. Almost all ebuilds should
+# inherit eutils, as a large amount of important functionality has been
+# moved there. For example, the epatch call mentioned below wont work
+# without the following line:
+inherit eutils
+# A well-used example of an eclass function that needs eutils is epatch. If
+# your source needs patches applied, it's suggested to put your patch in the
+# 'files' directory and use:
+# epatch "${FILESDIR}"/patch-name-here
+# eclasses tend to list descriptions of how to use their functions properly.
+# take a look at /usr/portage/eclass/ for more examples.
+# Short one-line description of this package.
+DESCRIPTION="This is a sample skeleton ebuild file"
+# Homepage, not used by Portage directly but handy for developer reference
+# Point to any required sources; these will be automatically downloaded by
+# Portage.
+# License of the package. This must match the name of file(s) in
+# /usr/portage/licenses/. For complex license combination see the developer
+# docs on for details.
+# The SLOT variable is used to tell Portage if it's OK to keep multiple
+# versions of the same package installed at the same time. For example,
+# if we have a libfoo-1.2.2 and libfoo-1.3.2 (which is not compatible
+# with 1.2.2), it would be optimal to instruct Portage to not remove
+# libfoo-1.2.2 if we decide to upgrade to libfoo-1.3.2. To do this,
+# we specify SLOT="1.2" in libfoo-1.2.2 and SLOT="1.3" in libfoo-1.3.2.
+# emerge clean understands SLOTs, and will keep the most recent version
+# of each SLOT and remove everything else.
+# Note that normal applications should use SLOT="0" if possible, since
+# there should only be exactly one version installed at a time.
+# DO NOT USE SLOT=""! This tells Portage to disable SLOTs for this package.
+# Using KEYWORDS, we can record masking information *inside* an ebuild
+# instead of relying on an external package.mask file. Right now, you should
+# set the KEYWORDS variable for every ebuild so that it contains the names of
+# all the architectures with which the ebuild works. All of the official
+# architectures can be found in the arch.list file which is in
+# /usr/portage/profiles/. Usually you should just set this to "~x86". The ~
+# in front of the architecture indicates that the package is new and should be
+# considered unstable until testing proves its stability. So, if you've
+# confirmed that your ebuild works on x86 and ppc, you'd specify:
+# KEYWORDS="~x86 ~ppc"
+# Once packages go stable, the ~ prefix is removed.
+# For binary packages, use -* and then list the archs the bin package
+# exists for. If the package was for an x86 binary package, then
+# KEYWORDS would be set like this: KEYWORDS="-* x86"
+# DO NOT USE KEYWORDS="*". This is deprecated and only for backward
+# compatibility reasons.
+# Comprehensive list of any and all USE flags leveraged in the ebuild,
+# with the exception of any ARCH specific flags, i.e. "ppc", "sparc",
+# "x86" and "alpha". Not needed if the ebuild doesn't use any USE flags.
+IUSE="gnome X"
+# A space delimited list of portage features to restrict. man 5 ebuild
+# for details. Usually not needed.
+# Build-time dependencies, such as
+# ssl? ( >=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.6b )
+# >=dev-lang/perl-5.6.1-r1
+# It is advisable to use the >= syntax show above, to reflect what you
+# had installed on your system when you tested the package. Then
+# other users hopefully won't be caught without the right version of
+# a dependency.
+# Run-time dependencies. Must be defined to whatever this depends on to run.
+# The below is valid if the same run-time depends are required to compile.
+# Source directory; the dir where the sources can be found (automatically
+# unpacked) inside ${WORKDIR}. The default value for S is ${WORKDIR}/${P}
+# If you don't need to change it, leave the S= line out of the ebuild
+# to keep it tidy.

+ # The default, quickest (and preferred) way of running configure is:
+ #econf
+ #
+ # You could use something similar to the following lines to
+ # configure your package before compilation. The "|| die" portion
+ # at the end will stop the build process if the command fails.
+ # You should use this at the end of critical commands in the build
+ # process. (Hint: Most commands are critical, that is, the build
+ # process should abort if they aren't successful.)

+# The following src_compile function is implemented as default by portage, so
+# you only need to call it, if you need different behaviour.
+# For EAPI < 2 src_compile runs also commands currently present in

+ # builds (especially on SMP systems). Try emake first. It might
+ # not work for some packages, because some makefiles have bugs
+ # related to parallelism, in these cases, use emake -j1 to limit
+ # make to a single process. The -j1 is a visual clue to others
+ # that the makefiles have bugs that have been worked around.

+# The following src_install function is implemented as default by portage, so

+#src_install() {

+ # anything outside of DESTDIR; do this by reading and
+ # understanding the install part of the Makefiles.
+ # This is the preferred way to install.
+ #emake DESTDIR="${D}" install
+ # When you hit a failure with emake, do not just use make. It is
+ # better to fix the Makefiles to allow proper parallelization.
+ # If you fail with that, use "emake -j1", it's still better than make.
+ # For Makefiles that don't make proper use of DESTDIR, setting
+ # prefix is often an alternative. However if you do this, then
+ # you also need to specify mandir and infodir, since they were
+ # passed to ./configure as absolute paths (overriding the prefix
+ # setting).
+ #emake \
+ # prefix="${D}"/usr \
+ # mandir="${D}"/usr/share/man \
+ # infodir="${D}"/usr/share/info \
+ # libdir="${D}"/usr/$(get_libdir) \
+ # install
+ # Again, verify the Makefiles! We don't want anything falling
+ # outside of ${D}.
+ # The portage shortcut to the above command is simply:
+ #
+ #einstall
