The current descent2-data ebuild does not install the movie-files.
I have modified the ebuild so you can enable the installation of movies by two USE-Flags : lowres and highres.
If used, the corresponding movie-files will be copied (if they exist) either from the original CD or from the files-directory.

descent2-data ebuild with optional movie installation.
The version remains 1.0, not 1.1

Oops, added "-f" to ensure that potentially read-only files copied from the CD can be overwritten.
Why should only one movieset be copied ?
Is it so unlikely that someone might want to use low resolution with one client while using high resolution with an other ?

OK, this ebuild allows both.
I'm sure I'll catch hell for this, but I don't see a point in only installing one or the other movies, so I've changed the USE to be "videos" and am installing both for everybody, instead.
Also, I *really* hate that FILESDIR crap, but I've left it in the ebuild even though one can just point their CD_ROOT to the proper location and be done with it without having to deal with keeping a copy of the ebuild in an overlay. Don't be surprised if I end up removing it at some point, since I consider it to be redundant. I mean, *maybe* if it were using DISTDIR instead of FILESDIR, it would be OK.

I totally agree to that DISTDIR would make a lot more sense.
Installing both video-types is fine for me. Maybe storage-space is cheap enough so that nobody cares about an option anyway... :)
