Universebenzene's personal Gentoo overlay.

Including some old software that no longer supported by official portage.

Alternative building of astropy related packages (more improvement for the doc building and testing, though some of them only work when the network-sandbox FEATURE is diabled, see the USE discriptions for details. (more information)

Related overlay: benzene-testlay, with some packages testing. You can add it for interest.

This overlay is available on Gentoo repositories. You can add it simply through several tools (e.g.: layman -a benzene-overlay or eselect repository enable benzene-overlay).

Also it's recommended to mask the whole overlay and then unmask just the packages you need, like this.
