Description Pablo Hess 2003-08-04 19:18:46 UTC
PAML is an excellent set of programs for phylogenetic analyses all written in
good ol' C.
It can make many kinds of analyses using the Maximum Likelihood approach (the
cool wave among phylogeneticists), and is the best one I know on this field.
Of course I suggest app-sci (isn't this redundant?). This package apparently has
no dependencies.
As this is my first ebuild ever, excuse me if something is terrible. I read
through all the necessary docs, but I still am not so sure about this ebuild's

Reproducible: Always

Sorry for this whole mess. Ebuild newbie here.
Please ignore "Additional Comment #2". I feel so stupid.
Comment 5 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-24 01:44:20 UTC
Please change your ebuild - nothing should go into /usr/local since all ebuilds
provide parts of the distribution. I am rather sure that you don't really
need post installation steps, what you're trying there looks more like trying
to clean up what went wrong during install.
You should also set ${S} instead of cd-ing there every time.
Comment 6 Pablo Hess 2003-11-02 04:18:04 UTC
I got a huge problem with this program, and I think I'll never make it work,
unless I change its code.

The binaries need control files (for example, baseml needs baseml.ctl) to
be located on the same directory as the binaries themselves. This would be
quite difficult to achieve, since binaries go to /usr/bin.
The thing is, people who use this software always run it from their home
directories. Also, the whole software package is pretty easy to compile.
So, I think there's no actual _need_ for this package to be on Portage, besides
my obvious inaptitude to change its code. I quit.

If anyone feels like hacking it, I'll be glad to help as possible.
