Despite this error message, the configure seems to run just fine.

Comment 1 Simone Gotti (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-06 08:31:37 UTC
This is not an error, only an advertisment that the confcache implementation that Dan Armak did some time ago isn't available (it was a portage patch).

I used it to speedup compilation and testing also if it has some bugs and it's unsupported. A better approach is available in portage cvs HEAD. 

Probably this call in the eclass will be removed in the future.

Comment 3 Dominik Strehlke 2005-06-06 14:43:03 UTC
Do you guys have any idea when the "better approach" in portage is going to be
available as a release?

Thanks for the great work!

Added a test in kde-meta.eclass which hides the 'not defined' message:
