           Summary: Adding --disable-send-postcard-to-developer to the
                    afterstep ebuilds
           Product: Gentoo Linux
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Applications
        AssignedTo: ka0ttic@gentoo.org
        ReportedBy: swegener@gentoo.org
                CC: gentoo.org@vaevictus.net


I'd like to have --disable-send-postcard-to-developer added to the econf line
for the afterstep ebuilds. Reasons:

1. During src_compile afterstep tries to send that mail, I guess it's called by
   one of the Makefiles. If the following conditions are met this breaks sandbox:
   - ${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/portage/homedir/.afterstep doesn't exist (precondition for
     afterstep to send that mail)
   - The MTA (for me exim) is configured to log things in /var/log (this causes the violation)
2. Information disclosure as according to the configure output the generated mail
   contains compiler and kernel version among several other things. Sending this
   mail shouldn't be the default for our users, who certainly don't know that
   afterstep sends that email, if their not familar with afterstep.
