Description Brian Evans Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2018-01-18 15:46:15 UTC
Due to bug 506276 and the critical nature of running the migration tool of unsymlink-lib, emerge should protect users from themselves so their installs do not become unusable.

Please have emerge die when SYMLINK_LIB=no and {,/usr}/lib is a symlink.

Solved this through profile.bashrc instead.  Sorry for the noise.
