I've noticed that some ebuilds print special instructions to be followed to complete the installation (e.g. integration into some other package).

Has anyone created a script to extract and print these for all the installed packages? In pseudo-scripting, something like:
Code:
qpkg -I -nc | xargs find . -name $1 | grep post_install_text

Not having to investigate this manually would be really nice :wink:

Does the discussion going on over here sound like it would be what you are looking for, too? If so, please chime in over there.
