.SH "NAME"
ebuild \- the internal format, variables, and functions in an ebuild script
.SH "DESCRIPTION"
The
.BR ebuild (1)
program accepts a single ebuild script as an argument. This script
contains variables and commands that specify how to download, unpack,
patch, compile, install and merge a particular software package from
its original sources. In addition to all of this, the ebuild script
can also contain pre/post install/remove commands, as required. All
ebuild scripts are written in bash.
.SH "EXAMPLES"
Here's a simple example ebuild:

.TP
.B MISC USAGE NOTES
\- All variables defined in \fBmake.conf\fR(5) are available for use in
ebuilds (such as the PORTAGE* and PORTDIR* variables)
.br
\- When assigning values to variables in ebuilds, you \fBcannot have a
space\fR between the variable name and the equal sign.
.TP
.B P
This variable contains the package name without the ebuild revision.
This variable must NEVER be modified.
.br
\fBxfree\-4.2.1\-r2.ebuild\fR \-\-> \fB$P\fR=='\fIxfree\-4.2.1\fR'

.TP
.B PR
Contains the revision number or 'r0' if no revision number exists.
.br
\fBxfree\-4.2.1\-r2.ebuild\fR \-\-> \fB$PR\fR=='\fIr2\fR'
.TP
.B PVR
Contains the version number with the revision.
.br
\fBxfree\-4.2.1\-r2.ebuild\fR \-\-> \fB$PVR\fR=='\fI4.2.1\-r2\fR'
.TP
.B PF

.br
\fBxfree\-4.2.1\-r2.ebuild\fR \-\-> \fB$PF\fR=='\fIxfree\-4.2.1\-r2\fR'
.TP
.B CATEGORY
Contains the package category name.
.TP
.B A
Contains all source files required for the package. This variable must
not be defined. It is autogenerated from the \fISRC_URI\fR variable.
.TP
\fBWORKDIR\fR = \fI"${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/portage/${CATEGORY}/${PF}/work"\fR
Contains the path to the package build root. Do not modify this variable.
.TP
\fBFILESDIR\fR = \fI"${PORTDIR}/${CATEGORY}/${PN}/files"\fR
Contains the path to the 'files' sub folder in the package specific
location in the portage tree. Do not modify this variable.
.TP
\fBS\fR = \fI"${WORKDIR}/${P}"\fR
Contains the path to the temporary \fIbuild directory\fR. This variable
is used by the functions \fIsrc_compile\fR and \fIsrc_install\fR. Both
are executed with \fIS\fR as the current directory. This variable may
be modified to match the extraction directory of a tarball for the package.
.TP
\fBT\fR = \fI"${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/portage/${CATEGORY}/${PF}/temp"\fR
Contains the path to a \fItemporary directory\fR. You may use this for
whatever you like.
.TP
\fBD\fR = \fI"${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/portage/${CATEGORY}/${PF}/image"\fR
Contains the path to the temporary \fIinstall directory\fR. Every write
operation that does not involve the helper tools and functions (found below)
should be prefixed with ${D}. Do not modify this variable.
.TP
.B PORTAGE_LOG_FILE
Contains the path of the build log. If \fBPORT_LOGDIR\fR variable is unset then
\fBPORTAGE_LOG_FILE\fR=\fB"${T}/build.log"\fR.
.TP
\fBROOT\fR = \fI"/"\fR
Contains the path that portage should use as the root of the live filesystem.
When packages wish to make changes to the live filesystem, they should do so in
the tree prefixed by ${ROOT}. Do not modify this variable.
.TP
\fBDESCRIPTION\fR = \fI"A happy little package"\fR
Should contain a short description of the package.
.TP
\fBSRC_URI\fR = \fI"http://happy.com/little/${P}.tar.gz"\fR
Contains a list of URI's for the required source files. It can contain
multiple URI's for a single source file. The list is processed in order
if the file was not found on any of the \fIGENTOO_MIRRORS\fR.
.TP
\fBHOMEPAGE\fR = \fI"http://happy.com/"\fR
Should contain a list of URL's for the sources main sites and other further
package dependent information.
.TP
\fBKEYWORDS\fR = \fI[\-~][x86,ppc,sparc,mips,alpha,arm,hppa]\fR
Should contain appropriate list of arches that the ebuild is know to
work/not work. By default if you do not know if an ebuild runs under
a particular arch simply omit that KEYWORD. If the ebuild will not
work on that arch include it as \-ppc for example. If the ebuild is
being submitted for inclusion, it must have ~arch set for architectures
where it has been PROVEN TO WORK. (Packages KEYWORDed this way may be
unmasked for testing by setting ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~arch" on the command
line, or in \fBmake.conf\fR(5)) For an authoritative list please review
/usr/portage/profiles/arch.list. Please keep this list in alphabetical order.
.TP
\fBSLOT\fR
This sets the SLOT for packages that may need to have multiple versions
co\-exist. By default you should set \fBSLOT\fR="0". If you are unsure, then
do not fiddle with this until you seek some guidance from some guru. This
value should \fINEVER\fR be left undefined.
.TP
\fBLICENSE\fR
This should be a space delimited list of licenses that the package falls
under. This \fB_must_\fR be set to a matching license in
/usr/portage/licenses/. If the license does not exist in portage yet, you
must add it first.
.TP
\fBIUSE\fR
This should be a list of any and all USE flags that are leveraged within
your build script. The only USE flags that should not be listed here are
arch related flags (see \fBKEYWORDS\fR).
.TP
\fBDEPEND\fR
This should contain a list of all packages that are required for the
program to compile.
.RS
.TP
.B DEPEND Atoms
A depend atom is simply a dependency that is used by portage when calculating
relationships between packages. Please note that if the atom has not already
been emerged, then the latest version available is matched.
.RS
.TP
.B Atom Bases
The base atom is just a full category/packagename. Hence, these are base atoms:
.nf
.I sys\-apps/sed
.I sys\-libs/zlib
.I net\-misc/dhcp
.fi
.TP
.B Atom Versions
It is nice to be more specific and say that only certain versions of atoms are
acceptable. Note that versions must be combined with a prefix (see below).
Hence you may add a version number as a postfix to the base:
.nf
sys\-apps/sed\fI\-4.0.5\fR
sys\-libs/zlib\fI\-1.1.4\-r1\fR
net\-misc/dhcp\fI\-3.0_p2\fR
.fi
Versions are normally made up of two or three numbers separated by periods, such
as 1.2 or 4.5.2. This string may be followed by a character such as 1.2a or
4.5.2z. Note that this letter is \fBnot\fR meant to indicate alpha, beta,
etc... status. For that, use the optional suffix; either _alpha, _beta, _pre
(pre\-release), _rc (release candidate), or _p (patch). This means for the
3rd pre\-release of a package, you would use something like 1.2_pre3. The
suffixes here can be arbitrarily chained without limitation.
.TP
.B Atom Prefix Operators [> >= = <= <]
Sometimes you want to be able to depend on general versions rather than specifying
exact versions all the time. Hence we provide standard boolean operators:
.nf
\fI>\fRmedia\-libs/libgd\-1.6
\fI>=\fRmedia\-libs/libgd\-1.6
\fI=\fRmedia\-libs/libgd\-1.6
\fI<=\fRmedia\-libs/libgd\-1.6
\fI<\fRmedia\-libs/libgd\-1.6
.fi
.TP
.B Extended Atom Prefixes [!~] and Postfixes [*]
Now to get even fancier, we provide the ability to define blocking packages and
version range matching. Also note that these extended prefixes/postfixes may
be combined in any way with the atom classes defined above. Here are some common
examples you may find in the portage tree:
.nf
\fI!\fRapp\-text/dos2unix
=dev\-libs/glib\-2\fI*\fR
\fI!\fR=net\-fs/samba\-2\fI*\fR
\fI~\fRnet\-libs/libnet\-1.0.2a
.fi
\fI!\fR means block packages from being installed at the same time.
.br
\fI*\fR means match any version of the package so long as the specified base
is matched. So with a version of '2*', we can match '2.1', '2.2', '2.2.1',
etc... and not match version '1.0', '3.0', '4.1', etc...
.br
\fI~\fR means match any revision of the base version specified. So in the
above example, we would match versions '1.0.2a', '1.0.2a\-r1', '1.0.2a\-r2',
etc...
.RE
.TP
.B Dynamic DEPENDs
Sometimes programs may depend on different things depending on the USE
variable. Portage offers a few options to handle this. Note that when
using the following syntaxes, each case is considered as 1 Atom in the
scope it appears. That means that each Atom both conditionally include
multiple Atoms and be nested to an infinite depth.
.RS
.TP
.B usevar? ( DEPEND Atom )
To include the jpeg library when the user has jpeg in \fBUSE\fR, simply use the
following syntax:
.br
.B jpeg? ( media\-libs/jpeg )
.TP
.B !usevar? ( Atom )
If you want to include a package only if the user does not have a certain option
in their \fBUSE\fR variable, then use the following syntax:
.br
.B !nophysfs? ( dev\-games/physfs )
.br
This is often useful for those times when you want to want to add optional support
for a feature and have it enabled by default.
.TP
.B usevar? ( Atom if true ) !usevar? ( Atom if false )
For functionality like the tertiary operator found in C you must use
two statements, one normal and one inverted. If a package uses
GTK2 or GTK1, but not both, then you can handle that like this:
.br
.B gtk2? ( =x11\-libs/gtk+\-2* ) !gtk2? ( =x11\-libs/gtk+\-1* )
.br
That way the default is the superior GTK2 library.
.TP
.B || ( Atom Atom ... )
When a package can work with a few different packages but a virtual is not
appropriate, this syntax can easily be used.
.nf
.B || (
.B app\-games/unreal\-tournament
.B app\-games/unreal\-tournament\-goty
.B )
.fi
Here we see that unreal\-tournament has a normal version and it has a goty version.
Since they provide the same base set of files, another package can use either.
Adding a virtual is inappropriate due to the small scope of it.
.br
Another good example is when a package can be built with multiple video
interfaces, but it can only ever have just one.
.nf
.B || (
.B sdl? ( media\-libs/libsdl )
.B svga? ( media\-libs/svgalib )
.B opengl? ( virtual/opengl )
.B ggi? ( media\-libs/libggi )
.B virtual/x11
.B )
.fi
Here only one of the packages will be chosen, and the order of preference is
determined by the order in which they appear. So sdl has the best chance of being
chosen, followed by svga, then opengl, then ggi, with a default of X if the user
does not specify any of the previous choices.

\fBRDEPEND\fR
This should contain a list of all packages that are required for this
program to run (aka runtime depend). If this is not set, then it
defaults to the value of \fBDEPEND\fR.
.br
You may use the same syntax to vary dependencies as seen above in \fBDEPEND\fR.
.TP
\fBPDEPEND\fR
This should contain a list of all packages that will have to be installed after
the program has been merged.
.br
You may use the same syntax to vary dependencies as seen above in \fBDEPEND\fR.

\fBRESTRICT\fR = \fI[strip,mirror,fetch,userpriv]\fR
This should be a space delimited list of portage features to restrict.
.PD 0
.RS
.TP
.I binchecks
Disable all QA checks for binaries. This should ONLY be used in packages
for which binary checks make no sense (linux\-headers and kernel\-sources, for
example, can safely be skipped since they have no binaries). If the binary
checks need to be skipped for other reasons (such as proprietary binaries),
see the \fBQA CONTROL VARIABLES\fR section for more specific exemptions.
.TP
.I confcache
Prevent econf from using confcache.
.TP
.I fetch
like \fImirror\fR but the files will not be fetched via \fBSRC_URI\fR either.
.TP
.I mirror
files in \fBSRC_URI\fR will not be downloaded from the \fBGENTOO_MIRRORS\fR.
.TP
.I primaryuri
fetch from URL's in \fBSRC_URI\fR before \fBGENTOO_MIRRORS\fR.
.TP
.I strip
final binaries/libraries will not be stripped of debug symbols.
.TP
.I test
do not run src_test even if user has \fBFEATURES\fR=test.
.TP
.I userpriv
Disables userpriv for specific packages.
.RE
.PD 1
.TP
\fBPROVIDE\fR = \fI"virtual/TARGET"\fR
This variable should only be used when a package provides a virtual target.
For example, blackdown\-jdk and sun\-jdk provide \fIvirtual/jdk\fR. This
allows for packages to depend on \fIvirtual/jdk\fR rather than on blackdown
or sun specifically.
.SH "QA CONTROL VARIABLES"
.TP
.B USAGE NOTES
Several QA variables are provided which allow an ebuild to manipulate some
of the QA checks performed by portage. Use of these variables in ebuilds
should be kept to an absolute minimum otherwise they defeat the purpose
of the QA checks, and their use is subject to agreement of the QA team.
They are primarily intended for use by ebuilds that install closed\-source
binary objects that cannot be altered.
.br
Note that objects that violate these rules may fail on some architectures.
.TP
\fBQA_TEXTRELS\fR
This variable can be set to a list of file paths, relative to the image
directory, of files that contain text relocations that cannot be eliminated.
The paths may contain regular expressions.
.br
This variable is intended to be used on closed\-source binary objects that
cannot be altered.
.TP
\fBQA_EXECSTACK\fR
This should contain a list of file paths, relative to the image directory, of
objects that require executable stack in order to run.
The paths may contain regular expressions.
.br
This variable is intended to be used on objects that truly need executable
stack (i.e. not those marked to need it which in fact do not).
.TP
\fBQA_WX_LOAD\fR
This should contain a list of file paths, relative to the image directory, of
files that contain writable and executable segments. These are rare.
The paths may contain regular expressions.
.SH "PORTAGE DECLARATIONS"
.TP
.B inherit
Inherit is portage's maintenance of extra classes of functions that are
external to ebuilds and provided as inheritable capabilities and data. They
define functions and set data types as drop\-in replacements, expanded, and
simplified routines for extremely common tasks to streamline the build
process. Inherit may only be called once in an ebuild and it may \fBnever be
wrapped within any conditionals\fR of any kind. Specification of the eclasses
contains only their name and not the \fI.eclass\fR extension. Also note that
the inherit statement must come before other variable declarations.
.SH "FUNCTIONS"
.TP
.B pkg_nofetch
If you turn on \fIfetch\fR in \fBRESTRICT\fR, then this function will be
run when the files in \fBSRC_URI\fR cannot be found. Useful for
displaying information to the user on *how* to obtain said files. All
you have to do is output a message and let the function return. Do not
end the function with a call to \fBdie\fR.
.TP
.B pkg_setup
This function can be used if the package needs specific setup actions or
checks to be preformed before anything else.
.br
Initial working directory of ${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}.
.TP
.B src_unpack
This function is used to unpack all the sources in \fIA\fR to \fIWORKDIR\fR.
If not defined in the \fIebuild script\fR it calls \fIunpack ${A}\fR. Any
patches and other pre configure/compile modifications should be done here.
.br
Initial working directory of $WORKDIR.
.TP
.B src_compile
All necessary steps for configuration and compilation should be done in here.
.br
Initial working directory of $S.
.TP
.B src_test
Run all package specific test cases. The default is to run 'make check'
followed 'make test'.
.br
Initial working directory of $S.
.TP
.B src_install
Should contain everything required to install the package in the temporary
\fIinstall directory\fR.
.br
Initial working directory of $S.
.TP
.B pkg_preinst pkg_postinst
All modifications required on the live\-filesystem before and after the
package is merged should be placed here. Also commentary for the user
should be listed here as it will be displayed last.
.br
Initial working directory of $PWD.
.TP
.B pkg_prerm pkg_postrm
Like the pkg_*inst functions but for unmerge.
.br
Initial working directory of $PWD.
.TP
.B pkg_config
This function should contain optional basic configuration steps.
.br
Initial working directory of $PWD.
.SH "HELPER FUNCTIONS: GENERAL"
.TP
\fBdie\fR \fI[reason]\fR
Causes the current emerge process to be aborted. The final display will
include \fIreason\fR.
.TP
\fBuse\fR \fI<USE item>\fR
If \fIUSE item\fR is in the \fBUSE\fR variable, the function will silently
return 0 (aka shell true). If \fIUSE item\fR is not in the \fBUSE\fR
variable, the function will silently return 1 (aka shell false). \fBusev\fR
is a verbose version of \fBuse\fR.

\fBuse_with\fR \fI<USE item>\fR \fI[configure name]\fR \fI[configure opt]\fR
Useful for creating custom options to pass to a configure script. If \fIUSE
item\fR is in the \fBUSE\fR variable and a \fIconfigure opt\fR is specified,
then the string \fI\-\-with\-[configure name]=[configure opt]\fR will be echoed.
If \fIconfigure opt\fR is not specified, then just \fI\-\-with\-[configure

.TP
\fBhas\fR \fI<item>\fR \fI<item list>\fR
If \fIitem\fR is in \fIitem list\fR, then \fIitem\fR is echoed and \fBhas\fR
returns 0. Otherwise, nothing is echoed and 1 is returned. As indicated with
use, there is a non\-echoing version \fBhasq\fR. Please use \fBhasq\fR in all
places where output is to be disregarded. Never use the output for calculation.
.br
The \fIitem list\fR is delimited by the \fIIFS\fR variable. This variable
has a default value of ' ', or a space. It is a \fBbash\fR(1) setting.
.TP
\fBhas_version\fR \fI<category/package\-version>\fR
Check to see if \fIcategory/package\-version\fR is installed on the system.
The parameter accepts all values that are acceptable in the \fBDEPEND\fR
variable. The function returns 0 if \fIcategory/package\-version\fR is
installed, 1 otherwise.
.TP
\fBbest_version\fR \fI<package name>\fR
This function will look up \fIpackage name\fR in the database of currently

if you are going to use \fBemake\fR, make sure your build is happy with
parallel makes (make \-j2). It should be tested thoroughly as parallel
makes are notorious for failing _sometimes_ but not always. If you determine

Similiar to the \fBprepall\fR functions, these are subtle in their differences.
.RS
.PD 0
.TP
.B prepinfo:
If a \fIdir\fR is not specified, then \fBprepinfo\fR will assume the dir
\fIusr\fR. \fBprepinfo\fR will then compress all the files in
${D}/\fIdir\fR/info.
.TP
.B prepman:
If a \fIdir\fR is not specified, then \fBprepman\fR will assume the dir
\fIusr\fR. \fBprepman\fR will then compress all the files in
${D}/\fIdir\fR/man/*/.
.TP
.B prepstrip:
All the files found in ${D}/\fIdir\fR will be stripped. You may specify
multiple directories.
