Description Philipp Kern 2003-10-23 10:54:04 UTC
Sendfile should be changed to use gpg instead of pgp. As pgp is not in gentoo's portage system, all the SAFT signing & authentication functions are out of order as the pgp binary is not found.

Probably this is an upstream problem.

But please don't, in any case, remove the ebuild.
Comment 1 Philipp Kern 2004-02-15 11:07:19 UTC
But there's obviously no real upstream.
There's a Debian version of sendfile available, probably it contains more patches to sendfile. (At least -26 does one more - dated 23 Nov 2001)

Until pgp makes it into the tree I don't see any way this could be done without rewriting sendfile.
