The bug that 14mRh4X0r explained is still around. He said it 4 months, 4 weeks and 1 day ago, and it is still not fixed.

That is just crazy...

I'm aware of an issue that makes the ../lib/portage/tests/emerge/ test fail, but haven't managed to debug it yet. Building in a clean chroot (e.g. through extra-x86_64-build) seems to work fine.

Portage now uses meson-python instead of Here's a diff for the PKGBUILD:

Documentation isn't generated on build or install (anymore?), so neither docbook-xsl nor epydoc are required as make dependencies. (The epydoc package is broken and obsolete anyway.)

How... would one use Portage on an Arch Linux system...?

I would imagine it would throw a fit if there's pre-existing packages on the system unknown to it like Pacman does?

Or would I be wrong?

Repoman versions also get tagged in the git repo, causing the package version to sometimes be something like repoman.3.0.3.r22.564217759-1. This can be fixed by adding --match 'portage-*' to the git describe invocation.

git url has changed to git:// I was able to edit the packagebuild to account for this locally, however then it keeps failing at line 17 at when it sed's the changelog. eselect-git has the same url issue but otherwise installs just fine still. I'll keep toying with it and post a new comment if I make any further progress.

makedepends += docbook-xsl

/bin/ebuild should use python2 as the shebang: sed -i "s|#!/usr/bin/python -O|#!/usr/bin/python2 -O|g" /bin/ebuild
