My old portage tree got broken somehow (permissions were all wrong, nothing really worked), so I used gentoo-uninstall.pl to remove it and re-install. I guess the uninstaller didn't quite get rid of everything, so re-installing gentoo didn't put all the necessary files back, or something.

Anyhow, when trying to install gdbm (a prereq for ruby), I'm getting errors like "ncsd: command not found", "getent: command not found", and "useradd: command not found." This isn't good, since I cannot figure out how to add them. Any suggestions?

You can find their source-pkgs as follows:
Code:

% qpkgwho nscd
sys-libs/glibc

% qpkgwho getent
sys-libs/glibc

% qpkgwho useradd
useradd (8)  - Create a new user or update default new user information
sys-apps/shadow

where `qpkgwho' is the (tcsh) alias
Code:

alias qpkgwho 'whatis \!* ; qpkg -f `which \!* ` '


Would someone care to write the corresponding alias/function
for `bash'? --Or to improve/correct the tcsh alias?

getent and useradd are linux programs and not part of OSX. Please make sure that your keyword is ppc-macos, it sounds like it's trying to add a user with the keyword set to macos.

Ok, I just tried it again (emerge gdbm), and it installed without any trouble. I must be dumb, or something...
