Description Wil Hunt 2005-09-14 19:02:32 UTC
Angband has a Borg (automated player) that can be compiled into its binary.  The
sources for the Borg can be obtained from various sources.  Since there are
multiple options for the Borg, it might be good to have multiple USE flags
depending on which Borg is desired.  For example the APWBorg, which is probably
the most popular, might have a USE flag of apwborg.

The APWBorg sources can be found at the APWBorg homepage:

Currently the URL for the source ZIP file is:

In order to make Angband with the APWBorg, you need to do a little more before
you build Angband.

1) Unpack Angband in the usual manner.
2) Unpack the borg sources into {$P}/src
3) Rename the borg sources so that they are lower case.  (For some reason, they
always come out in upper case.)
4) Add the .c and .o files to the in {$P}/src

Then you can run the configure and make programs accordingly.

I'd take a patch for this but since no one has submitted a patch to the ebuild in over four years it seems like there isn't much interest.

Closing WONTFIX unless someone reopens with a patch.
