Description Maxim Treskin 2007-09-08 13:46:57 UTC
Why we cannot install sbcl without sbcl-binary, while sbcl is installed on the system? I just make smth like:

 src_compile() {
+       mkdir -p ${WORKDIR}/sbcl-binary/output
        local bindir="${WORKDIR}/sbcl-binary"
+       cp -a /usr/lib64/sbcl/sbcl.core ${bindir}/output/sbcl.core

After this I have normal installation, using binary sbcl installed earlier. This solution certainly not preferred for systems without previous installation of sbcl.
Can you help me with my question?

Thank you.

Err, because there's just totally no legal way to know that you already have sbcl installed at SRC_URI stage?
Comment 2 Maxim Treskin 2007-09-08 14:23:40 UTC
For this case we can add to IUSE flag like "nobin". I think that it is more prefferable way. Not so?

Hi Maxim,

I've been wanting to get this fixed.
Please pop into #gentoo-lisp if you want to discuss this.

This bug is too old. I close it.
