When you submit your ebuilds, the header should be exactly the same as the one in
/usr/portage/header.txt. Most importantly, do not modify it in anyway and make sure that the $Header: $ line is intact.
The first three lines should look something like this:
Code Listing 2.1: Valid Header
# Copyright 1999-2005 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: $
The first part of every ebuild file is made up of a number of variables. They fall under 3 categories (and are marked below):

READ: variables you can utilize but never set

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)

MUST: variables you must always set

OPT: variables that you should set
READ The name and version of the package.
READ The name of the package.
READ The version of the package.
Contains the revision number or r0 if no revision number exists.
READ Contains the version number with the revision.
READ Contains the full package name ${PN}-${PVR}.
Space delimited list of the filenames in SRC_URI. This does not contain the URL paths, just the filename.
Contains the path to the distfiles directory where all the files fetched for a package are stored. Typically, this is /usr/portage/
Contains the path to the files sub folder in the package specific location in the portage tree. Do not modify this variable.
Base of the build root for the ebuild. Nothing should be built outside of this directory.
The source directory for your package; commonly $
{WORKDIR}/${P}. Portage will default to this value so you may not have to set it!
The temporary directory for your package. It is used as a virtual /tmp directory while processing the ebuild.
The root directory that the package is installed to, treat it as the virtual /.
Portage handles different versions of the same installed programs. If you would want, say GCC 2.95 and GCC 3.2 installed at the same time, you would specify the SLOT in each ebuild. Here we would set the SLOT of GCC 2.95 to 2 while we would set the SLOT of GCC 3.2 to 3.
Note: Using 0 as the SLOT value signifies that this package only has 1 SLOT setting (in other words, this package is not
This variable specifies what license the program is covered under, i.e. GPL-2, BSD, etc... This field must be set to a valid license (which is any license found in /usr/portage/license/). If the license does not already exist there, it must be added before the ebuild can be added to the portage tree. If the license does not allow redistribution, make sure you place
RESTRICT="nomirror" in the ebuild.

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)
This variable now supports a couple of different functions. First of all, this variable specifies what architecture the ebuild is meant for. Some example keywords include: x86, ppc, sparc, mips, alpha, arm, hppa, amd64 and ia64. See the profiles/arch.list file in the Portage tree for more details.
Obviously, you would set this to reflect the architecture of the target machine. Portage will not allow an x86 machine to build anything but x86, as specified by the KEYWORDS variable.
Packages that do not support the native architecture are automatically masked by Portage. If the KEYWORDS flag has a preceding
, then that indicates that the particular ebuild works, but needs to be tested in several environments before being moved to the stable profile with the given keyword. If the
KEYWORDS flag has a preceding -, then the package does not work with the given keyword. If there is nothing leading
KEYWORDS, then the package is considered stable. You can allow installation of these different types of packages through the ACCEPT_KEYWORDS variable in make.conf.
DESCRIPTION MUST A short, one line description of your package.
The URLs for every source file in your package, separated by whitespace. You should try not to include version numbers in the SRC_URI and S. Always try to use ${PV} or ${P}, and if a version number is not consistent with the name of the source package, make a ${MY_P} variable and use that instead.
The homepage of the package. If you are unable to locate an official one, try to provide a link from or a similar package tracking site. Never refer to a variable name in the string; include only raw text.
This is set to whatever USE variables your package utilizes.
Remember that KEYWORDS should not be listed in here!
The package's build dependencies are listed here. See the section
Package Dependencies for more details on proper syntax.
The package's runtime dependencies are listed here. Once again, see
Package Dependencies for more details.
There are a number of different functions that you can define in ebuild files that control the building and installation process of your package.
Use this function to perform any miscellaneous prerequisite tasks. This might include checking for an existing configuration file. pkg_nofet ch
Inform the user about required actions if for some reason (such as licensing issues) the sources may not be downloaded by Portage automatically. Use

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)
this in conjunction with RESTRICT="fetch". You only should display messages in this function, never call die. src_unpac k
Use this function to unpack your sources, apply patches, and run auxiliary programs such as the autotools. By default, this function unpacks the packages listed in A. The initial working directory is defined by WORKDIR. src_compi le
Use this function to configure and build the package. The initial working directory is S. src_install
Use this function to install the package to an image in D. If your package uses automake, you can do this simply with emake DESTDIR="${D}" install.
Make sure your package installs all its files using D as the root! The initial working directory is S. src_test
Executed only when FEATURES="test" is set and RESTRICT="test" is unset, the default of this function executes an available testing function from any Makefiles in the ${S} directory, running either "make test" or "make check" depending on what is provided. It can be overriden to create a custom test setup. pkg_prein st
The commands in this function are run just prior to merging a package image into the file system. pkg_posti nst
The commands in this function are run just following merging a package image into the file system. p kg _ p r e r m
The commands in this function are run just prior to unmerging a package image from the file system. pkg_postr m
The commands in this function are run just following unmerging a package image from the file system. pkg_confi g
You use this function to setup an initial configuration for the package after it's installed. All paths in this function should be prefixed with ROOT which points to user-specified install root which may not happen to be /. This function is only executed if and when the user runs: emerge --config =${PF}.
Functions_You_can_also_use_the_following_helper_functions_in_your_ebuilds._Function_Purpose'>Helper Functions
You can also use the following helper functions in your ebuilds.
Check if one or more given USE-flags are defined. If so, the function will return shell true. In either case, nothing is echoed to standard output. For a verbose version, please use usev which will echo the USE flag if it is defined. has_versi on
Returns 1 if the system has the requested version of a certain package. For instance has_version >=sys-libs/glibc-2.3.0. best_versi on
Returns category/package-version of the requested category/package. For instance best_version x11-libs/gtk+extra. use_with This function checks if a use-flag has been defined and returns "--with- foobar" or "--without-foobar" accordingly. If you only use one argument, that

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)
argument is both use-flag and with(out)-string. Otherwise the first argument is the use-flag and the second argument the with(out)-string. For instance use_with truetype freetype will echo "--with-freetype" if truetype is in USE. use_enabl e
The same as use_with, but returns "--enable-foobar" or "--disable-foobar" accordingly. check_KV
Checks if Portage knows kernel version. If not, display an error and die. If you need the kernel version in your script, use the KV variable which is automatically defined by Portage. On a system running gentoo- sources-2.4.20-r6, KV would have the value "2.4.20". keepdir
Creates (if necessary) a .keep file in the given directory so that it isn't auto- cleaned. Never create a .keep file yourself. If portage changes how keepdir works, then creating the file yourself will break the package. econf
Issues ./configure with the necessary path-changes (prefix, host, mandir, infodir, datadir, sysconfdir, localstatedir). You can optionally pass extra arguments to ./configure by specifying them when you call econf, and users can set the environment variable EXTRA_ECONF if they need to. Options passed to configure take precedence in the reverse order that they were given. In other words, the first argument passed will always be overridden by the last. einstall
Issues make install with the necessary path-changes (prefix, datadir, mandir, infodir, datadir, sysconfdir, localstatedir). Again, you can pass extra arguments to the make command by specifying them when you call einstall.
Please note that the preferred way to install a package is via the emake install DESTDIR="${D}" command and not via einstall. This command is only a fall back to override broken make files. die
Causes the current process to be aborted. It will notify the user using the given arguments as a reason. Do not neglect to pass a message to die if you have more than one call to it in a single function. It is harder to track down a failure if you're not sure where the package failed. elog
Inform the user about something important. The argument given to elog is the message that the user will see. Do not use elog to display banners such as "*************************************". The fact that you're using elog is enough to get the user's attention. The message is also logged using portages ELOG system. einfo
Display informative but non-important messages that don't need to be logged.
Helper Functions provided by eutils.eclass
You can use the following helper functions that are provided by the "eutils" eclass in your ebuilds. You must make sure that inherit eutils is present for these functions to work.
This function acts as a friendlier replacement to the patch command and epatch works with .bz2, .gz, .zip and plain text patches. You do not need

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)
to specify a "-p" option, any options that do need to be explicitly specified should be set in EPATCH_OPTS. The function expects either a file or a directory as an argument - if you specify a directory, all patches in the form of "??_${ARCH}_..." will be applied: for a patch to be applied, it needs to match the running architecture, have "_all_" in the name, or
EPATCH_FORCE must be set to "yes". gen_usr_lds cript
This function generates linker scripts in /usr/lib for dynamic libraries in /lib.
This fixes linking problems when a .so is in /lib while a .a is in /usr/lib. edos2unix
This function performs the same action as the dos2unix binary. egetent egetent acts as a wrapper for getent for Linux or nidump for Mac OS X
(R). enewuser
Creates a new user. This function expects a mandatory argument with the username, and several optional arguments can be specified: $2 contains a UID, pass -1 for the next available ID; $3 contains the shell, pass -1 for the default; $4 contains a home directory with /dev/null being the default,
$5 contains any groups to which the user should be added, empty by default and $6 contains any extra options that you may wish to pass to useradd. enewgroup
Adds a new group. This function expects a mandatory argument with the group name - an optional second argument makes the group have a specific GID. make_deskt op_entry
Makes a desktop entry: the first argument contains the path to the binary.
Optionally, the second contains a name for the icon - the default is ${PN}; the third can contain a path to the icon relative to /usr/share/pixmaps or a full path - the default is ${PN}.png; the fourth can contain an application category
, and the fifth argument contains an optional application startup path. check_licen se
Displays a license for the user to accept, if no arguments are specified then the license specified by ${LICENSE} is used. unpack_pdv
Unpacks a pdv generated archive, the first argument must contain the file to unpack and the second should contain "off_t" which has to be manually generated: strace -elseek ${file} and for something like "lseek(3, -4,
SEEK_END)" you would pass the value "4". unpack_mak eself
Unpacks a makeself generated archive, requires a file to unpack as the argument. cdrom_get_
Attempts to get a CD, present with files specified by the arguments present on the system and mounted at ${CDROM_ROOT}. cdrom_load
Loads the next CD once you are done with the first CD. If the function returns, ${CDROM_ROOT} would point to the next CD. strip-linguas This function makes sure that LINGUAS contains only the languages that a package can support specified by the arguments to the function. If the first argument is -i, then a list of .po files in the specified directories is built and the intersection of the lists is used. If the first argument is -u, then a

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)
list of .po files in the specified directories is built and the union of the lists is used.
Helper Functions provided by flag-o-matic.eclass
You can use the following helper functions that are provided by the "flag-o-matic" eclass in your ebuilds. You must make sure that inherit flag-o-matic is present for these functions to work. You should never modify any compiler settings directly, instead please use flag-o-matic to perform any actions such as filtering flags that cause trouble.
This function removes particular flags from C[XX]FLAGS - only complete flags are matched. append-flags
This function adds extra flags to the existing C[XX]FLAGS variables. replace-flags
This replaces the flag specified by the first argument with the one in the second argument in the current C[XX]FLAGS. r e p l a c e - c p u - flags
Needs two arguments. Replace a given mtune/mcpu/mtune value with the new one (maybe like this: replace-cpu-flags 'i686' 'i586' will replace -mtune/-march/-mcpu=i686 with -mtune/-march/-mcpu=i586). strip-flags
Strips all flags, except those specified in ALLOWED_FLAGS. s t r i p - u n s u p p o r t e d - flags
Strips C[XX]FLAGS of any flags not supported by the running version of GCC. get-flag
Finds a flag and outputs its value. is-flag
This returns true if the flag is set in the current C[XX]FLAGS; only complete matches are performed. append-ldflags
This function adds extra flags to the existing LDFLAGS variable. filter-ldflags
Removes the specified flags from LDFLAGS, only complete flags are matched. fstack-flags
Appends -fno-stack-protector which suppresses -fstack-protector and
Helper Functions provided by toolchain-funcs.eclass
You can use the following helper functions that are provided by the "toolchain-funcs" eclass in your ebuilds. You must make sure that inherit toolchain-funcs is present for these functions to work. You should never explicitly specify any compiler or binutils settings directly, instead please use toolchain-funcs to specify compilers and binutils.
The purpose of using the below functions is to support cross-compiling and the icc compiler. These should be used whenever a package explicitly uses gcc, g++, ld, ranlib or any of the below tools. In general packages that use autoconfiguration tools detect cross compiling automatically and do not need the following functions.
Returns the name of the archiver

Returns the Minor version gcc-micro-version
Returns the Micro version
Rules for writing an ebuild file
Since ebuild files are really just shell scripts, you should use your editor's shell-script mode for editing them. You should use proper indentation, using only tab characters -- no spaces. Make sure you set up your editor to put tab stops at 4 spaces. Always make sure you use braces around your environment variables; e.g. ${P} instead of just $P.
Long lines are wrapped with ' \', thus:
Code Listing 2.2: Wrapping lines in ebuilds
./configure \
--prefix=/usr || die "configure failed"
For further details, refer to skel.ebuild (usually residing in /usr/portage).
If you use Vim for ebuild/eclass editing, the default Gentoo vimrc file, /etc/vim/vimrc, already ensures that correct indentation and filetype settings are used for ebuild and eclass files. For better results, including special syntax highlighting for ebuild keywords, emerge app-vim/gentoo-syntax.
On non-Gentoo systems, you can obtain similar results by using the following lines in your vimrc, or better yet by installing the gentoo-syntax scripts which can be downloaded from Gentoo mirrors.
Code Listing 2.3: Configuring vimrc for ebuild-editing au BufRead,BufNewFile *.e{build,class} let is_bash=1|setfiletype sh au BufRead,BufNewFile *.e{build,class} set ts=4 sw=4 noexpandtab
If you're using Emacs, you should emerge app-emacs/gentoo-syntax (for GNU Emacs) or app-xemacs/gentoo-syntax (for XEmacs). These packages provide Emacs major modes for automatic indentation and syntax highlighting of ebuilds and other Gentoo

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)
specific file types.
If you're using nano, then you're in luck! Just edit /etc/nanorc and uncomment the section referring to ebuild's.
USE Variables
The purpose of USE variables is to allow you to configure Portage to globally and automatically enable or disable certain optional build-time features. Here's an example.
Let's say you're a GNOME fan, and you'd like any ebuild that has the option of compiling-in optional GNOME support to do so. In this case, you'd add gnome to the
USE variable in /etc/make.conf, and then Portage will automatically add optional
GNOME functionality to packages if it is available. Likewise, if you don't want optional
GNOME features to be added to your ebuilds if they are available, simply edit
/etc/make.conf and make sure that gnome is not set in the USE variable. Gentoo Linux has an almost overwhelming number of USE options, allowing you to have your system configured exactly the way you want it.
Note: If you unset a USE variable (for example, removing gnome from USE), this will only instruct Portage to disable optional build-time support for GNOME. However, if you emerge an ebuild that requires GNOME, the package will obviously have GNOME support enabled, as you would expect. This also means that GNOME will be automatically installed (as a dependency) if it hasn't been already. That's why it's always a good idea to do an emerge --pretend before doing the "real" emerge; that way, you'll always know exactly what you're going to get!
In your own ebuilds, you can check whether a USE variable is set by using the use
command. You would normally use this command as follows:
Code Listing 2.4: Finding out if a USE-flag is set if use X; then
# Commands specific to X...
USE variables can also be used to set dependencies. For example, you may only want to require a package if a certain USE variable is set. This is done by using the syntax flag? ( mycat/mypackage ) in the DEPEND variable for your ebuild. In this example, mycat/mypackage will only be required if flag is present in USE. It is also possible to specify what dependency should be used if some USE flag is set, and what dependency to use if it is not set: flag? ( mycat/mypackage) and !flag? ( othercat/otherpackage ). In this case, if flag is not set, othercat/otherpackage is used instead of mycat/mypackage.
Make sure that your ebuilds use this syntax and not Bash IFS. Bash conditionals interfere with Portage's dependency caching, and the use of them will break your ebuild.
Here's an important tip about how to use USE. Most of the time, a package will have a ./
configure script used to perform configuration steps. Generally, if your ebuild uses
./configure, any optional build-time functionality will be enabled or disabled by passing the appropriate arguments to the ./configure command. Here's the best way to handle this:
Code Listing 2.5: Conditionals based on USE-settings
DEPEND="X? ( >=x11-base/xfree-4.3 )
mysql? ( >=dev-db/mysql-3.23.49 )
apache2? ( >=net-www/apache-2 )
!apache2? ( =net-www/apache-1* )"

Ebuild HOWTO (Англ.)
src_compile() {
econf \
$(use_enable X x11) \
$(use_enable mysql) \
|| die "Error: econf failed!"
emake || die "Error: emake failed!"
This approach has a very nice result. We don't have to worry about what the default setting is for mysql or X (enable/disabled), we explicitly tell econf what we want it to do based upon the USE variable. Not to mention it's quite clean in terms of readability :).
Occasionally, ebuilds will have conflicting optional features. Checking for these conflicts and returning an error is not a viable solution. Instead, you must favor one of the features over the others. As to which, consult upstream (what they use as typical default), or consider which option provides more common functionality, or just flip a coin. One example comes from the msmtp ebuilds. The package can use either SSL with GnuTLS, SSL with OpenSSL, or no SSL at all. Because GnuTLS has a lot more features compared to OpenSSL, it is favoured:
Code Listing 2.6: Handling conflicting features src_compile() {
local myconf if use gnutls ; then myconf="${myconf} --enable-ssl --with-ssl=gnutls"
elif use ssl ; then myconf="${myconf} --enable-ssl --with-ssl=openssl"
else myconf="${myconf} --disable-ssl"
fi econf \
# Other stuff
${myconf} \
|| die "configure failed"
emake || die "make failed"
