Default gentoo-x86 commit in perl-core/Compress-Raw-Zlib

Why is prefix not in IUSE?

IUSE lists "the USE flags used by the ebuild.
Historically, USE_EXPAND values and ARCH were not included..."

prefix is not an ARCH.


BTW: don't we bump EAPI to not add this `use prefix ||...` test?

While prefix is not an ARCH or a in USE_EXPANDed variable, it is
included in the list of implicit USE flags, which do not need to be
included in IUSE.

We could, if EAPI-3 were supported by portage (the support has not yet
been enabled) and the council okayed it to be used in the tree (which
has not yet occurred).
