I've added a comment to the end of the ebuild script to tell the user how to
enable color support within an X terminal. It appears console color support
OPTIONS=color in the ~/.nethackrc file

Added a helpful notice to the end of the build.
Thanks, added and commited teh ebuild.
I'm considering to forwardport my default .nethackrc patch from nethack 3.3
series, leaving this open as a reminder. :)
I'll just tack this ebuild on here.
This version I wrote from scratch, but after I got stuck I got a lot of good
info from the existing nethack ebuilds. I have included a CREDITS.gentoo.
On to the meat. This ebuild supports USE flags X, qt, and gnome. I have also
included a default .nethackrc file and a FAQ-ish thing about why I made some
decisions. It removes the need for /usr/games as this is to be avoided from
what I hear. It will emerge with qt2 or 3 installed, but it will only use 2. I
have tested tty, X, qt, and gnome window types and it seems to run very
The whole setup process should be:
cp /usr/share/nethackdir/dot.nethackrc ~/.nethackrc
This was such a fun project. Let me know if I screwed the pooch.
Uh, seems I can't create an attachment. Spider I'll email you the build.
