Description Michael Seifert 2014-08-11 09:50:07 UTC
When establishing a cross-compile toolchain with crossdev, a wrapper for the emerge command is created, such as x86_64-w64-mingw32-emerge. However, there is no command like x86_64-w64-mingw32-ebuild which allows running ebuild commands in the cross-compile environment.

To ease the development of ebuilds for other architectures, crossdev should provide a prefixed ebuild command, such as x86_64-w64-mingw32-ebuild, when creating a toolchain.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. x86_64-w64-mingw32-ebuild boost-1.55.0-r1.ebuild configure
Actual Results:  
x86_64-w64-mingw32-ebuild does not exist.

Expected Results:  
x86_64-w64-mingw32-ebuild runs the required steps until the ebuild's configure phase.
