Some of the crossdev tools I emerged required that package.use was a diretory rather than a file. Hence I switched to the /etc/portage/ directory structure even though I find it somewhat confusing. I can't seem to find this documented anywhere either (e.g. not in emerge(1) or portage(5)). My problem is that it appears that dispatch-conf gets confused by this structure as I get the following error when I run it and try to use it:

Code:

dispatch-conf
...
+#required by www-client/chromium-24.0.1312.56, required by @selected, required by @world (argument)
+>=sys-libs/zlib-1.2.7 minizip

>> (1 of 1) -- /etc/portage/package.use/net-libs/courier-authlib
>> q quit, h help, n next, e edit-new, z zap-new, u use-new
   m merge, t toggle-merge, l look-merge: 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/dispatch-conf", line 492, in <module>
    portage.settings.get('CONFIG_PROTECT', '')))
  File "/usr/sbin/dispatch-conf", line 338, in grind
    self.post_process(conf['current'])
  File "/usr/sbin/dispatch-conf", line 371, in post_process
    portage.dispatch_conf.file_archive_post_process(archive)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage/dispatch_conf.py", line 198, in file_archive_post_process
    os.rename(archive + '.dist.new', archive + '.dist')
OSError: [Errno 20] Not a directory


It also seems like something got messed up when I run:

Code:
emerge --update --deep --with-bdeps=y --newuse world --autounmask-write


I expected (but as I said I'm confused about what the correct directory structure is) use flags for courier-authlib to go to:

Code:
/etc/portage/package.use/net-libs/courier-authlib


But this file gets filled with other use flags as well:

Code:
cat /etc/portage/package.use/net-libs/courier-authlib
net-libs/courier-authlib   -sqlite
#required by media-libs/sk1libs-0.9.1, required by media-gfx/uniconvertor-1.1.5, required by media-gfx/inkscape-0.48.4, required by @selected, required by @world (argument)

#required by www-client/chromium-24.0.1312.56, required by @selected, required by @world (argument)
>=sys-libs/zlib-1.2.7 minizip



So where can I find documentation on the portage directory structure and clean up this mess?

It seems like I have misunderstood the structure. One should only use hierarchy whenever required, and use /etc/portage/package.use/package.use for the rest. I thought one always had to use full package hierarchy under /etc/portage/package.use.

The only place where I have to use hierarchy is for the crossdev toolchain:

Code:
/etc/portage/package.use/cross-armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi


So this is solved, but I still be happy with some pointer to some documentation about this.

/etc/portage/
Any file in this directory that begins with "package." can be more than just a flat file. If it is a directory, then all the files in that directory will be sorted in ascending alphabetical order by file name and summed together as if it were a single file.

Thanks Genone, I missed that part.
