Comment 1 Avi Schwartz 2002-04-09 08:02:41 UTC
I am having the same problem and 

1) it seems that the pfixtls version number is either incorrect or was replaced
by a new version:


2) I don't have add mta-tls in USE so why is it trying to do anything with this
file?  ebuild error or portage error?
Comment 2 Jon Nelson (RETIRED) 2002-04-09 21:33:07 UTC
I updated the ebuild to 1.1.7, for which the tls stuff is available.
However, this exposes a bug in portage (1.8.18 as of this writing), in that
so-called USE flags are ignored in SRC_URI and DEPEND.  While updating the
ebuild to reflect 1.1.7, I altered the if use foo constructs such that, while I
can't prevent portage from downloading and unpacking the mta-tls stuff, at least
postfix won't try to compile it in. ;-)
