I am trying to make an ebuild for scummvm emulator. The source file is called
scummvm_0.2.0-src.tgz

I have ( so far ) made this .ebuild called scummvm-0.2.0.ebuild

A=${P/-/_}-src.tgz
S=${WORKDIR}/${P}
DESCRIPTION=""
SRC_URI="http://unc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/scummvm/${P}.tgz"
HOMEPAGE="http://unc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/scummvm/"

DEPEND=""

RDEPEND=$DEPEND

src_unpack() {
unpack ${A}.tgz
cd scummvm
}

Then this happened

computa scummvm # ebuild scummvm-0.2.0.ebuild fetch
!!! doebuild: /usr/portage/portage/scummvm/scummvm-0.2.0.ebuild not found.
portage: aux_get(): couldn't open cache entry for portage/scummvm-0.2.0
(likely caused by syntax error or corruption in the portage/scummvm-0.2.0 ebuild.)

I have consulted a few people and nobody seems to know why this doesn't work.

Most likely because ebuilds belong in subdirectories -- you've got yours placed in /usr/portage/scummvm when it really should be /usr/portage/app-emulation/scummvm. My guess is portage is expecting one more level of subdirs and barfing when it doesn't find it.

Try placing the scummvm directory within app-emulation and see if that doesn't solve the problem.

EDIT: Just noticed you have it in /usr/portage/portage, at least according to your error output. I still suggest placing the scummvm directory within app-emulation

In my example my ebuild was in the /root, but I tried to put it into both /usr/portage/scummvm and /usr/portage/app-emulators/scammvm and I do get same error with slightly different paths.

Doesn't this already exist in app-games?

There is. Sorry, didn't find it myself. But this doesn't resolve the ebuild issue.

Just give ebuild an absolute path, you'll be fine. (ebuild /usr/portage/category/name/name-version.ebuild fetch)
