Description Mark Guertin 2003-02-10 04:29:12 UTC
When you run ebuild foo.ebuild digest, it overwrites anything that may have been
in there from other arches

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. take a pkg with diff SRC_URI for arches, xfree-drm is good example
2. ebuild xfree-drm- digest
3. it overwrites with only your aches digest into

Expected Results:  
it appends to any existing MD5 lines there

Portage cannot deal with SRC_URIs like that...
Portage cannot account for variables wrapped in bash conditionals.

You'll have to just deal with that one by hand as the ebuild is
definately illegal from a portage standpoint. The cache will
never be updated, because the bash conditionals aren't part of
portage. The metadata change will _always_ be wrong for it on
some platforms.
