Comment 2 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-05 03:22:09 UTC
A few problems with this ebuild:
- don't set S to its default value
- things that are in IUSE should actually be checked during configure/make (read: have an effect on what you get)
- for sourceforge stuff, use the mirror:// syntax
- don't include comments from the example ebuild
- don't include hardcoded version numbers within the ebuild if possible (see http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/ebuild-mistakes.xml )
- if things are only needed for building, not for running (I guess this is valid for stuff like flex and bison), define RDEPEND for the real runtime dependencies

About your question by e-mail, do a bugzilla search for how many open "enhancement" bugs the sci team still has :-/
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2008-01-16 12:03:23 UTC
There is no new versions after 0.9.4, and this is for GNOME 1.

checking for gnome-config... no
checking for gnomeConf.sh file in /usr/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install

Closing as RESOLVED, WONTFIX.

For reference, http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=460795

Debian is also dropping this package for same reason.
