Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-03-26 03:39:07 UTC
This package uses variables banned in some scopes. This may stop working in future versions of Portage.

$ pkgcheck scan -k VariableScope mail-filter/spamassassin
  VariableScope: version 3.4.5-r1: variable 'D' used in 'src_configure', line 139
  VariableScope: version 3.4.6-r1: variable 'D' used in 'src_configure', line 139

Not sure how to address this.  See [1] for details/background.

Seems like this is endemic to traditional Perl build systems.

I'm just going to watch bug #778806 and bug #836052, and follow their lead whenever (if ever) they act upon this issue.
