The road ahead? [In reply to]

Just wanted to put my 2cent into the discussion.
I suppose I am currently just a pure Gentoo-OSX user, and while I see the
point of the prefix project, I am not really convinced by it. I like the
way Gentoo integrates into the system, or at least the part accessible by
a console.

I see this as an advantage above e.g. Fink, with its own namespace. The
namespace variant implies that I have to fudge around with PATH variables
and other CLI stuff, in order to get the apps working. I still have no
real MacOSX integration, with App folder and GUI starter elements (which
would be my biggest feature request)

From what I see as a user, the Gentoo packages divide into 4 categories

1) packages which integrate nicely into the system (no dependencies, or
dependencies which are properly provided by MacOS)
2) packages which clash with MacOS provided packages, things like python
or automake spring to mind
3) packages which depend on 2)
4) misc packages which are otherwise problematic. This means most of the
package.masked packages, where I cannot really speak about.

The biggest problem is obiously the packages in 2)

My private idea in order to emerge packages in 3) would currently be to
manually install the needed packages in places like /usr/local (instead of
Gentoos /usr) and put these packages into package.provided. It would be
really nice if I could use this way while still being able to use the
emerge functionaltiy. Perhaps this could be handled by a special USE flag?

Regards
Dirk
