Description Mark Purtill 2005-07-02 11:28:43 UTC
What I want to do is put

app-text/acroread -linguas_ja

in portage.use to work around bug #97401.  But this doesn't work; apparently the LINGUAS variable takes precidence (so I still get the Japanese acroread).  So there needs to be some way to set LINGUAS for an individual package.  Just doing

env LINGUAS=en emerge acroread

is error prone (it would be lost next time a new version is available and in any case won't really work for me because I have a dialup at home, so I generate a list of files to download and get them elsewhere).
