Well.. the only other possibility would be to set up a clean overlay, put
the existing cmake ebuilds there and fill in the rest like kaffeine etc.
and then slowly convert them as serghei or someone else seems fit to do
But for this we need first some documentation/specification about
paths/names etc... i don't think it is a good idea to put trinity into the
old /usr/kde/3.5 path we should use sth. like /usr/tde or /opt/tde i am
not sure what really is FSFE compliant.

Btw. what is the correct location for qt3? Is it really /usr/qt/3? I think
i remember qt4 installs to /usr/lib/qt4 That should also be fixed...
Just some thoughts...
I have setup an empty github repository which i wanted to start fresh and
add correct mirrors etc. before commiting anything else.
If you want, we could put our efforts into that repo ( )

Maybe we should post this to the gentoo-desktop list (which i really need
to re-subscribe) i think i remember that there was at least one other
person that was interested in this (not sure if it was a dev).

Probably an arch-dependant error.. i can test this again on x86 this week
and then report upstream/open a bug-report.

After looking into the eclass i found that there is a QTDIR-variable. That
one should be responsible for the qt-stuff. I will check that also.
