Paco is a source code package organizer for Unix/Linux systems, originally
written to aid package management when installing an LFS system.
When installing a package from sources, paco wraps the "make install" command
(or whatever is needed to install the files into the system), and generates a
log containing the list of all installed files.
Technically, this is done by preloading a shared library before installation
using the environment variable LD_PRELOAD. During installation this library
catches the system calls that cause filesystem alterations, logging the created
At the moment this method is known to work only in Linux, and Solaris.
Like any other package manager, paco also provides several options to print
package information in different formats. It can remove packages too, among some
other basic operations. See the man page for more details.
Gpaco is the GTK+ graphic interface of paco. It's included in the same tarball
and installed by default, althought it can be disabled at configure time. Gpaco
requires GTK+ (2.6 or later), and pkg-config.
See some screenshots here.
Paco is protected by the GNU General Public License. Look at the COPYING file in
the tarball for more details.

This ebuild works with the newest version of paco (1.10.2) if you comment out the entire src_unpack section. Unaltered, the ebuild fails with this message:

Your solution (removing src_unpack) is not correct. It will fail if sandbox is enabled. This ebuild fixes the problem (forces use of older automake).
What about this programs ebuild? Will it be included in the portage-tree soon?

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.
Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The
sunrise overlay is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)
Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us.
We anticipate a large number of requests in a short time.
