Modify the qmail-scanner ebuild to read in a local config from maybe /etc/conf.d/qmail-scanner to be included at the end of the configure string.
This would allow people to maintain/override settings across new ebuilds.
Steps to Reproduce:
attach a patch with your functionality.
what would be more useful is a mod to qmail-scanner that moves the configuration section out to a new file.

Tested, works as expected against latest ebuild.
Anything new? Right now the ebuild is pretty much unusable for me, because I
need different options than the ones supplied in the ebuild. So I need to edit
the ebuild whenever I'd like to install a new version... Some global config
for the ebuild would be nice...
I think a /etc/conf.d/qmail-scanner should be included as part of the install... That way a user could edit it without trying to figure out what goes into it.
btw, can we get this change (plus my suggestion above) into portage?

I don't even see qmail-scanner in portage anymore. The previous comment was made about 6 years ago. I'd say close this bug.
