parentsys-devel/gdb: Move DEPEND to BDEPEND in EAPI 7 ebuilds (diff)
profiles: Define a default for ACCEPT_LICENSE.
In its 2019-02-10 meeting, the Gentoo Council has decided that the default for ACCEPT_LICENSE should be changed to @FREE. We take that opportunity to move the default to make.defaults in the base profile, for the following reasons: - The setting depends on the @FREE license group, which itself is not defined in Portage, but in profiles/license_groups. - Setting the default in profiles will allow to perform the switchover at a precise time, independent of Portage release and stabilisation schedule. - Profiles are a better location to define the default distro policy. - GLEP 23 says so.
