In the pine-4.58 ebuild, there appears to be no logic to handle the passfile patch. Any of these fail to produce a passfile-enabled pine:
(1) putting passfile as a USE option in make.conf
(2) using 'passfile' as a USE option on the command-line
(3) mucking with the IUSE list in the ebuild
However, adding this line does work:
This should be a USE option, since not everyone will want a passfile for security reasons.
Alternative to all of the above, I am an idiot and missing something obvious.
Steps to Reproduce:
'passfile' first introduced in pine-4.58-r2. Please try the latest verison in the portage tree.
