Portage is not super-rich of useful software, and the funny stuff usually has to be fetched from overlays. Unfortunately, overlays are big, tend to duplicate portage entries or worse: they live on svn. So here's a tool to fetch only the packages you want, nothing else. Fill in your gmpup.lst like in the provided example and run gmpup.pl. You will need Perl's LWP::Simple module (dev-perl/libwww-perl) to run it. It will fetch the list to the ports/ directory. If you are brave, you can use the command-line option --destdir to sync your packages to /usr/local/portage: ./gmpup --destdir=/usr/local/portage It _shouldn't_ break anything, and it works fine for me, but I'm not changing that default dir until the script gets tested in the field. Patches, ideas, and constructive criticism welcome. TODO: * Update only the needed files, instead of removing the whole dir and fetching it again * Write a gentoo ebuild for gmpup (help anyone?)
