Description Kobboi 2015-03-05 13:48:56 UTC
Calling emerge with --configroot set, I still get:

Autounmask changes successfully written.

Would you like to add these changes to your config files? [Yes/No] 
 * IMPORTANT: config file '/etc/portage/package.use/xtables-addons' needs updating.

(we should also get rid of this let's-just-append-stuff-to-some-file logic)

Reproducible: Always

Please post your emerge --info

If you also use --root, then /etc/portage is used for build-time dependencies from DEPEND. Did you use --root or ROOT?
