I use http-replicator, but that's not directly related to my problem,
it's just how I discovered it. I occasionally prune the http-replicator
cache by emptying every system's distfiles directory, then run "emerge
-fe world" to download only the current distfiles from my
http-replicator system. Afterwards I delete the files from the
replicator cache and copy the distfiles over from the systems to the
replicator cache directory.
I usually do a pretend run first (add pv to the emerge command) to see
how many packages I'm dealing with. On this one system, I see odd results.
Robotech paul # emerge -pve world
These are the packages ...
The above shows the only instances of dnspython/xcursorgen/yasm in the
entire output (checked with grep).
The "upgraders" (dnspython, xcursorgen, yasm) are not in world, nor is
xvid. The three packages (bittorrent, xcursor-themes, mplayer) at the
top of the trees are in world.
Two of the three are direct dependencies of packages in world, so they
should show as upgradeable even without --deep.
What am I missing/doing wrong?
