[PREFIX] Renaming of ${DEST}

Howdy,

I forgot to mention this at the meeting. I found a few packages (not
in portage currently thankfully) that have namespace collisions with
the ${DEST} var. My thought is to change it to ${DD}, as in 'DESTDIR'.

Thoughts? Better idea for a name?

Say the word and I'll make the change in the next snapshot and
cleanup the ebuild repo.

The only thing that comes to my mind as alternative is "${EDEST}".
Might be slightly more self-explanatory. I don't care much about which
of the two it will become, as long as the change is done atomic ;)

On a related note:
What about using ${EPREFIX} instead of ${PREFIX}? ${PREFIX} at least
clashes with the toolchain-funcs eclass, and might as well be used by
other packages.

Does it make sense to anyone?

Hi,

related to renaming things:

Have there been any more thoughts or even implementations to [1]
about having a function to query the prefix of a required package ?

My first goal are not the interdomain-deps, but to have a portage-
feature to install each non-system-package into a separate subdir within
the same portage-domain.

Yeap, I was thinking about this too. It should be done. Maybe we can
tackle both of these this weekend.

You should at least tackle both at once, IMO ;)
I can help with changing ebuilds/eclasses, as I'm currently in a fight
with binutils, gcc and glibc anyway.

Thoughts for sure, no implementation yet though. My fear is this
would bring in many of the problems of interdomain stuff if we did it
'right'. i.e. repo-ids, etc. But perhaps I'm making it more complex
than need be, some extra data stored in the vdb and a simple lookup
tool could 'just work'. I think along with just being able to find
the filesystem location of a package, we might as well go all the way
and basically do an internal pkgconfig clone. This would allow stuff
like:

DEPEND="<my-dependency-2"

econf-or-src_compile() {
.../configure \
--prefix=$(eprefix) \
--with-my-dependency=$(eprefix "<my-dependency-2")

append-flags $(eprefix --cflags "<my-dependency-2")
append-ldflags $(eprifix --libs "<my-dependency-2")
}

Maybe...

Some of this would definitely overlap with some of the features Dirk
has asked for, i.e. merging a package to a selfcontained dir for
public distribution, self-contained OS X frameworks, etc.

Its a good idea, IMHO, but will be awhile before I personally will
start hacking on it. Others are welcome to give it a go =)

FINE! I'll start checking in the portage changes to svn. That being
said, in case any of you are in the habit of running the svn version,
it'll be broken for a bit.

Ok, why don't you keep all your changes local and we'll try to
coordinate a big atomic commit this weekend perhaps?
