Since I unmasked fox-1.7, there are now two slots of
x11-libs/foxavailable. If you're using
x11-libs/fxscintillayou're probably aware that this library links to the FOX toolkit - that's the whole point.
Now, the newest fxscintilla can work with both FOX-1.6 and FOX-1.7.
But there can only be one /usr/lib/fxscintilla.so!
So the whole point of this post is to ask you for your opinion: do you need fxscintilla to link to both versions of FOX? Do you want one version but need to configure which FOX version fxscintilla links to?
The ebuild I have now and which will be available shortly just does the most simple thing: link to the most recent FOX version (1.7) if available. That is what upstream does.
So my question is: do you need something different?
