-About Portage
-Portage is a package management system based on ports collections. The
-Package Manager Specification Project (PMS) standardises and documents
-the behaviour of Portage so that ebuild repositories can be used by
-other package managers.
-Python and Bash should be the only hard dependencies. Python 3.6 is the
-minimum supported version.
-Native Extensions
-Portage includes some optional native extensions which can be built
-in the source tree by running the following command:
- python setup.py build_ext --inplace --portage-ext-modules
-The following setup.cfg settings can be used to enable building of
-native extensions for all invocations of the build_ext command (the
-build_ext command is invoked automatically by other build commands):
- [build_ext]
- portage_ext_modules=true
-Currently, the native extensions only include libc bindings which are
-used to validate LC_CTYPE and LC_COLLATE behavior for EAPI 6. If the
-native extensions have not been built, then portage will use ctypes
