An ebuild on Gentoo Forums was posted on March 19, 2004, as a query re. how to do it right. I was able to use it in July 2009, by doing the following:
1. edited the file and change the version number to "6" (the current debian etch version)
2. named the file moby-dictionary-1.0.ebuild, and install it in my local overlay.
I am attaching my altered ebuild as a bug/request.
The attached ebuild worked fine after installed dictd and dictd-dicts.
This installs from a *.deb file from Debian GNU/Linux. It may be preferable to install from upstream source, if such exists.
Created attachment 197293 [details]
ebuild for moby-thesaurus for dictd.
