Description Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-18 03:06:29 UTC
portageq in 2.0.51 is not behaving as expected which breaks crossdev and possibly other scripts.

/usr/tmp/portage $ export ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="-* sparc"

/usr/tmp/portage $ /usr/bin/portageq best_visible / sys-devel/binutils

Comment 1 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-18 04:43:42 UTC
The KEYWORDS that are accepted are a combination of ACCEPT_KEYWORDS as well as your /etc/make.profile/make.defaults:ARCH. I'm not sure how this crossdev script works, but portage does not yet support cross-compiling. When it does, it is likely that ${ROOT}/etc/make.profile will be used instead.
Comment 2 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-18 11:14:47 UTC
is tehre a way to override the settings in the profile with envvars?  I tried 'export ARCH=sparc' and that failed to give the expected response to portageq.

I believe Jeremy and Brian are working toward getting cross-compiling support 
working for the 2.1.X tree, with config and build profiles.

Closing due to old age.
