Description Steve Pole 2004-06-02 16:44:31 UTC
after emerging the Perforce scm server and its tools onto an x86 2004.1 gentoo system using 'emerge perforce', the environment variables set in /etc/env.d/50perforce IMO are nonsense:

p4d, p4web & p4ftpd are installed to /usr/sbin, so ROOTPATH should point there, shouldn't it ? The man pages are stored in /usr/share/man, so MANPATH doesn't even have to be modified.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do 'emerge perforce'
2. look at output of emerge
3. compare /etc/env.d/50perforce with what's on your harddrive

Actual Results:  
I submitted a bug report.

happy to supply that on request
