emerge --info

Running portage-2.2.13:

$ emerge eix
$ FEATURES="unmerge-backup" emerge -C eix
>>> Unmerging in: 5 4 3 2 1
>>> Unmerging (1 of 1) app-portage/eix-0.29.3...
/usr/bin/python2.7: can't open file '/usr/lib/portage/python2.7/quickpkg': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Where quickpkg really is:
$ qlist sys-apps/portage | grep quickpkg

Falling back to portage-2.2.8-r1 resolves the issue.

_quickpkg_dblink: fix bug #523152

This fixes the unmerge-backup and downgrade-backup features to be compatible with the new quickpkg install location, while preserving compatibility for running from a source tree (for unit tests or developement purposes). If not running from a source tree, then the PATH variable is used to locate the quickpkg binary.

I'll be maintaining this patch in the following branch:

Now it's fixed to use X_OK instead of EX_OK.
