Description onip 2010-09-15 08:37:45 UTC
Some of the make.conf's FEATURES are configurable on a per-package basis via the newly introduced package.env ( #44796 ), but not the binpkg FEATURE ( ).

In my case I build binpkgs with my (old) desktop to be able to quickly update my notebook which I use for university work. I'd like to be able to omit ( time consuming ) binpkg build for some package that really don't require it like *-bin and kernel sources and modules.

Thanks for listening

Reproducible: Always

This will be easy to implement with a small modification to the EbuildBuild class.

On a side note, I guess you should be able to use the new wildcard support to do a package.env setting that matches */*-bin.

We have a slight complication in interaction between the ebuild --buildpkg option and FEATURES=buildpkg. I guess we should handle this by treating the ebuild --buildpkg option as if it's a FEATURES=buildpkg override in the calling environment, which would take precedence over any package.env settings.
