Description Fabio Erculiani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-13 15:19:21 UTC
pkg_preinst() {
        use pam && pam_epam_expand "${D}"/etc/pam.d/login

as per PMS specification, this is illegal. You cannot use ${D} in pkg_*, it breaks binpkgs.

Reproducible: Always

your diagnosis is wrong.  $D is valid in pkg_preinst.
