I'm wondering what we can do to get this implemented:

http://www.washington.edu/pine/pine-info/2002.04/msg00000.html

Basically need to change pine.h to specify a password file. Then you wouldn't have to log in everytime to check your IMAP mail.

Can we do this?

Sure -- just do:

Code:
emerge --fetchonly pine


(or whatever the actual package name is)

That will download it to the location specified by your $DISTDIR. Find and edit the file in question, then do:

Code:
emerge pine


Which will check $DISTDIR, see that you already have the sources, and compile from there.

I don't have a $DISTDIR environment variable defined. I did the --fetchonly on the emerge, and can't seem to find where it put them. Doesnt' look like /usr/portage or /var/tmp/portage have them.

Should I have set this variable?

By default, downloaded packages are installed in /usr/portage/distfiles
