Comment 1 Armando Di Cianno (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-05 14:42:49 UTC
basic, I see you were watching the other "old gnustep bug" concerning the old gnustep.eclass.  Pretty much, as of -today- I figured out a regrettably hackish, yet working, method for gnustep ebuilds that does not use addwrites in the ebuilds.  Upstream wasn't too receptive to the patches I submitted to truly fix the systemic problems, but that's okay, it happens.

gnustep-gui-0.8.8 is -really- old, and I'm probably not going to fix this bug, but would you be up for testing the newest ebuilds when I get them done?  Should be tonight, tomorrow, or tomorrow night?
