Description Matt Whitlock 2022-11-27 23:33:43 UTC
There is a diminishing number of packages that install libraries to /lib* irrespective of usr-merge. net-firewall/ipset is one of them. There is no harm in installing libraries to /lib*, but it's not strictly "correct" on merged-usr systems. Please add "split-usr" to IUSE and Do The Right Thing with it. Thank you.

    net-firewall/ipset: move libipset to /usr/lib
    I can't see any reason to install this in /lib.
