Description Nick Fortino 2009-04-23 05:30:01 UTC
Algorithm 4 on page 49 of the pms [1] specifies that the variable CONF_LIBDIR_OVERRIDE unconditionally overrides the directory used by the doins* functions. portage- seems to ignore the variable, as evidenced by the fact that no source file in portage refers to the variable, and that it mis-installs the libraries from the recently updated nvidia-cuda-toolkit-2.1 ebuild into /opt/cuda/lib64 instead of /opt/cuda/lib due to the fix in bug 265722. A simple grep of the portage tree reveals the only other place the variable is referenced is from the multilib eclass, the nvidia-cuda-toolkit ebuild is likely the only main tree ebuild affected by the mismatch between portage and the pms.

[1] numbers accurate as of git checkout 5d64265fe623adf6346ea2793e55ec0e57869dbf

to be precise, this is about algorithm 10
which is used for dolib,, dolib.a and einstall, afais
