Description Andrew Aladjev 2014-04-18 13:34:24 UTC
Hello. I want to create aarch64 crossdev environment today. I need gcc-4.9 from toolchain overlay and binutils-9999 from core gentoo overlay.

1. if I will add toolchain overlay to PORTDIR_OVERLAY:

 * getting sys-devel/binutils from /var/lib/layman/toolchain
 * getting sys-devel/gcc from /var/lib/layman/toolchain
 * getting sys-libs/glibc from /var/lib/layman/toolchain
 * getting sys-devel/gdb from /var/lib/layman/toolchain

but there are no binutils-9999 in toolchain overlay.

2. if I will not add toolchain overlay to PORTDIR_OVERLAY - there are no gcc-4.9 in core gentoo overlay

The problem is the part of "set_links" function:

for s in ${ovl} ${SEARCH_OVERLAYS} ; do
  if [[ -d ${s}/${cat}/${pkg} ]] ; then
    einfo "getting ${cat}/${pkg} from ${srcdir}"

This code do not care about package's version. Please consider attached patch.

Reproducible: Always

Crossdev is not part of portage, but is its own package.  Re-assigning to the maintainer.
