Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2021-01-17 17:57:50 UTC
When installing I read:

"warning: be sure to add `/var/tmp/portage/sys-apps/bat-0.17.1-r1/image/usr/bin` to your PATH to be able to run the installed binaries"

This makes no sense. PATH should not point to /var/tmp 

Reproducible: Always

if installed_anything {
        // Print a warning that if this directory isn't in PATH that they won't be
        // able to run these commands.
        let dst = root.join("bin").into_path_unlocked();
        let path = env::var_os("PATH").unwrap_or_default();
        for path in env::split_paths(&path) {
            if path == dst {
                return Ok(());

totally harmless, just checks if the installed binaries are in path.
since we install to temporary directory - it's not in path and always triggers warning and not easy to disable without patching.

all rust/cargo packages have this warning.
