This is not my area of expertise. Plz assign it someone who will manage to
make this into portage.

semi-working ebuild

I version-bumped this nedit ebuild, but it fails when linking.	I'd like to
if anyone can get it to work...

Also, I had to add the flag -DBUILD_BROKEN_NEDIT because it doesn't like
OpenMotif 2.2.*
The only other thing I did was modify the tarball so that it extracted a
correct path in the work dir.
Comment 6 bartron 2003-10-10 19:59:25 UTC
  The undefined references are because nedit by default links
with static motif libraries and openmotif-2.2 for some unknown 
reason adds references to resedit functions (which are in 
libXmu).  Possible workarounds are to link to the shared 
libXm (pulls in libXmu automatically), or add `-lXmu' to the 
link line.

  However... there's still the problem that nedit developers
consider both openmotif-2.2 and lesstif-0.93.40 "known-bad".
They definitely have a point with lesstif-0.93.40 (frequently
takes focus from the main text field and there's no way to 
move it back).  Adding `-DBUILD_BROKEN_NEDIT' allows nedit to
build, but on the other hand does just that... it builds a 
broken version of nedit, and also adds a section to the 
`version' help page telling users to complain to their linux 
distributor to build nedit with a stable motif.

  There's currently work underway to move motif and lesstif to
different (also nedit-compatible) versions that also allows
them to be installed at the same time, but until that is 
sorted out --

- builds nedit against shared motif libs
- adds `-DBUILD_BROKEN_NEDIT' only if neccessary
(question: 5.3 depends on aspell only if "spell" is in USE, 
but builds the exact same binary even if it is not, is that 
correct?  Changed to hard depend for now).
