Patch to ripmime Makefile to respect LDFLAGS, improve parallelism, and ease maintenance
This patch addresses the problem reported in summary. Next, I will attach a patch to the ebuild to make use of this patch.
Created attachment 244793 [details, diff]
Patch to ripmime-188.8.131.52.ebuild to apply prior patch and to improve parallelism
Attachment #244791 [details, diff] renames the libripmime target to reflect that it generates a file named libripmime.a. For reasons not documented in the current ebuild, nor in the ChangeLog, the ebuild uses -j1. However, this is not needed. This patch converts the ebuild to let the user build in parallel, adjusts the reference to libripmime, and applies the preceding patch.
Fixed in CVS.
