Description Ole Tange 2002-08-15 06:24:20 UTC
I have asked on IRC and noone knew if Gentoo has an option similar to rpm -y. I 
would like to know if the packages are installed as they *think* they are 
installed, so that if a package misses a file or if a file is modified since 
installation then it should be listed.

`qpkg -h`
