sys-fs/sysfsutils is broken and dead upstream. Dependency on it needs to be
removed so we can remove it from the tree.
Okay I looked at the code up to the latest snapshot at
and arping.c still #include <sysfs/libsysfs.h>, and makes calls/references to sysfs_* in its set_device_broadcast() function. Looks like we won't be able to drop this dep without some upstream patching. On the positive side, it does look like the sysfs dependence is localized, and so maybe I can just lift and refresh that code out of libsysfs and submit a patch upstream.
BTW, git clone git://www.linux-ipv6.org/gitroot/iputils and hence iputils-99999999.ebuild is failing ... looks like they're having some (temporary?) problems with their git daemon.
