Description James Cloos 2013-05-08 22:22:06 UTC
The eclass contains this block:

  dosym vim.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/gvim.1.gz
  dosym vim.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/gview.1.gz
  dosym vimdiff.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/gvimdiff.1.gz

but it is unlikely that vim.1.gz and vimdiff.1.gz exist.

Portage’s default is to use bzip2.

Some of us use xz.

(Is it PORTAGE_COMPRESS which controls the compression for man pages?)

The eclass needs to set the symlink based on what is actually installed by app-editors/vim.
