Python Multiplexing(And another Ego update)

An update to ego-1.1.3-r5

By Oleg / August 25, 2017

As many may noticed with recent meta-repo updates a difficulty with PYTHON_TARGETS appeared due to new python multiplexing functionality in app-admin/ego has landed into meta-repo. This happened little bit too early than planned, hence the unexpected surprise. In a few words, python multiplexing is the new way of PYTHON_TARGETS handle. Previously python variables were hardcoded in profiles's make.defaults with ability to override in /etc/portage/make.conf. Now meta-repo scripts automatically set the required python settings. This functionality also coupled with kits and python version updates, which can be performed in one step. More on this will be added in future news items.

The fix is following:

root #  ego sync
root #  emerge -1 --nodeps ego
root #  epro update
