Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2008-04-06 09:53:51 UTC
The summary says it all. /usr/share/man/cat* does not conform to FHS. Also man will not look for that location and create its own cat pages in /var/cache/man/.

src_install should just rm -rf "${D}"/usr/share/man/cat* .

(Same issue for the heimdal-1.1.ebuild that is attached to bug 185899.)

 * Messages for package app-crypt/heimdal-0.7.2-r3:

 * This package will overwrite one or more files that may belong to other
 * packages (see list below). Add "collision-protect" to FEATURES in
 * make.conf if you would like the merge to abort in cases like this. You
 * can use a command such as `portageq owners / <filename>` to identify
 * the installed package that owns a file. If portageq reports that only
 * one package owns a file then do NOT file a bug report. A bug report is
 * only useful if it identifies at least two or more packages that are
 * known to install the same file(s). If a collision occurs and you can
 * not explain where the file came from then you should simply ignore the
 * collision since there is not enough information to determine if a real
 * problem exists. Please do NOT file a bug report at
 * unless you report exactly which two packages
 * install the same file(s). Once again, please do NOT file a bug report
 * unless you have completely understood the above message.
 * Detected file collision(s):
 *      /usr/share/man/man3/editline.3.bz2

Issue is fixed in actual heimdal 1.2.x release which is part of our overlay at git:// As long as not all deps are fixed I'd like to ask you to use the overlay.
