I noticed there was a newer version of SILO (Sparc Improved boot LOader) relased
on the Silo Homepage (http://silo.sourceforge.net/). The release date is
2002-08-13, so I thought to submit an ebuild for it. I didn't see an entry for
it in package.mask, so here is one to add. Basically, renaming the current
sil0-1.2.5.ebuild file to "silo.1.2.6.ebuild" was all that was neccessary. The
build emerges without any observed problems, as I have already emerged 1.2.6,
and it boots fine.

I've tested this ebuild (it's in portage now, it's just masked for testing), and
1.2.6 works fine for me.
[sparc64, 1.4 profile, both my test machines still boot. :)]
Seeing as silo-1.2.6 is no longer in package.mask, perhaps this bug/enhancement
report can be closed?
