Default RFC: media-sound/xmms2/xmms2-0.7.ebuild

There is yet 'New Package' request: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93583

I think I've hacked more or less maintainable ebuild (attached)
and plan to maintain media-sound/xmms2 but one thing worries me:

package (and ebuild) has ruby, python and perl bindings.
I need help to check/fix current installation scheme as
I have zero experience in $forementioned-lang
bindings support in gentoo maintenance.

Other comments about ebuild issues are welcomed.

either lose the quotes or lose the double brackets. hint: the former.

use eerror or die

USE flag cannot contain spaces or anything else that requires quoting

my, we sure do like to be verbose

you need to give the DESTDIR to configure ? no wonder xmms2 sucks

i highly suspect this isnt what you think it is. if this option is for cross-
compiling, then use ${CHOST}.

> optionals+="$(xmms2_flag $option)"

dont need the quoting when doing ...=$(...)

> "${S}"/waf

the default dir for most src_* funcs is $S, so just use ./waf

> use python && python_mod_optimize $(python_get_sitedir)/xmmsclient

shouldnt sitedir be quoted ?

It's not a need -- with waf destdir can be set at either configure or
install time.
