Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2017-10-15 22:01:18 UTC
The dev-util/debugedit package is a fork which has not been updated for a few years. If available, we can prefer to use /usr/libexec/rpm/debugedit installed by app-arch/rpm.

    prepstrip: use debugedit from rpm if necessary (bug 634378)
    If debugedit is not found in PATH, then use debugedit
    installed by app-arch/rpm (if available).
