Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2017-06-24 09:49:30 UTC
The virtual is intended to be used for portable packages, along with portability.eclass' get_bmake function.

So either:

1. fix your package to use get_bmake, if it can work with any form of BSD-like make,

2. fix your package to depend on sys-devel/pmake directly.

However, note that sys-devel/pmake is dead and going to be lastrited soonish in favor of sys-devel/bmake.

I've changed the dep to unblock fixing virtual/pmake. Please decide whether you're happy with it as-is, or test it with bmake and if it works, update the ebuild to use get_bmake and the virtual.
