I updated the gentoo bug report with this information two days
ago  (http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70161#c38).

went a little further. Repackaged the source tarball so that the top-level directory ended in 2.0.4. Build went further but I got something I've never seen before:

ACCESS DENIED  mkdir:     /usr/portage/distfiles/install
install: cannot create directory `/usr/portage/distfiles/install': Permission denied
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1

went further this morning and posted this series of observations and questions on the gentoo user mailing list in search of answers:

trying to use the xen ebuild from bugzilla and I've encountered a series of problems which have overcome in less than ideal ways and I'd like to try and fix them the right way.

The xen source tarball is delivered with a ./xen-2.0/ path and not with the version number is part of the path. As a result $(S) is wrong and I'm wondering what's the right way to handle this?

I worked around the problem by rebuilding the tarball with the version number in the path and encountered a situation where it was trying to make a directory in someplace it shouldn't. (/usr/portage/distfiles/install). looking further into the makefile generating the error, it appears that $(DESTDIR) is the culprit. My second question is it legitimate to change DESTFILE or should I create a patch or dynamically edit makefiles to change DESTFILE. If I change it, what do I change it to?

Scott, do you want me to update the bugzilla entry?
