Description Robert Nujic 2004-10-19 02:20:37 UTC
the exact ebuild file is:

there's a small typo on the 16th line of the script, it ends with a ^A instead of a double quote. removing that character, and putting a double quote fixed the problem.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge mailx

There's nothing we can do about it as /var/db/pkg is different on every users system and is out of our direct control. Current ebuilds in CVS seem to be fine.

In fact a duplicate of bug 46096.
Comment 3 Robert Nujic 2004-10-19 04:40:05 UTC
