We're missing a ebuild for libmqueue.
This library is required to use mqueue which can be used with 2.6.7 (or 2.6.6? I don't know. I'm upgrading from 2.6.5 to 2.6.7) and CONFIG_POSIX_MQUEUE.
This is that the kernel help text says about CONFIG_POSIX_MQUEUE:
POSIX variant of message queues is a part of IPC. In POSIX message
queues every message has a priority which decides about succession
of receiving it by a process. If you want to compile and run
programs written e.g. for Solaris with use of its POSIX message
queues (functions mq_*) say Y here. To use this feature you will
also need mqueue library, available from
POSIX message queues are visible as a filesystem called 'mqueue'
and can be mounted somewhere if you want to do filesystem
operations on message queues.

I think this can make it but it needs testing.

provisional ebuild (ver2: updated description)
sorry, but i forgot the description
Hi, we can't commit in ebuilds with lines such as "# (C) 2004 by Christian Korff." . If you are happy to assign copyright of your ebuild to the Gentoo Foundation, it may get committed in if somebody is willing to maintain it. If so, you will get a mention that you submitted the ebuild in the ChangeLog's first entry.
This isn't a Kernel Team bug; this is an ebuild for a POSIX queue system the kernel merely implements. I'm handing this back to the Bug Wranglers so they can possibly find a maintainer for this ebuild.
I was going to volunteer to maintain this ebuild, but after looking on the site it
looks as though any versions of glibc released after 04-12-2004 include libmqueue.
Would there still be any reason for the ebuild?
well, taking a look at /usr/portage/sys-libs/glibc I still see 4 glibc 2.3.2-r* and 4 glibc verions newer than 2.3.2. And we
well, taking a look at /usr/portage/sys-libs/glibc I still see 4 glibc 2.3.2-r* and 4 glibc verions newer than 2.3.2. And we´ve got a 3.2.x ebuild (for compatibility reason?)
I personally use glibc 2.3.2. I don´t know then it was released but I think it was released prior 12.04.2004.
Tim Yamin: Okay, you can remove it as long as I get mentioned. ;-) But I put time of myself in this issue and so I just want to mention myself.
closing this, because apparently newer glibc's use this.
Besides that, the reporter did not read the ebuild guides and ebuild mistakes documentation. *NOBODY* except the original submitter can change the Copyright line. Our rules for submitting ebuilds are very clear in the documentation. Credit to the authors goes automatically to the ChangeLog.
