Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-06-18 19:40:34 UTC
|| ( dev-libs/libedit sys-libs/readline:= )

:= inside || is forbidden and broken. Also automagic switching between two libs is a bad idea.

    www-servers/varnish: Remove invalid := slotop from || (), #586330

I've just removed the op to fix the immediate issue. However, you still need to fix the automagic dep.
Comment 2 Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2016-07-10 18:06:58 UTC
I don't see a point to depending on either readline or libedit.  I've just dropped this to sys-libs/readline:0= for the latest ebuild I added.  Once 3.0.7 and 4.0.3 are off the tree, we should be rid of all the automagic.
