NAMEpreserve-libs.eclass - preserve libraries after SONAME changes
- preserve_old_lib <libs to preserve> [more libs]
- These functions are useful when a lib in your package changes ABI SONAME. An example might be from libogg.so.0 to libogg.so.1. Removing libogg.so.0 would break packages that link against it. Most people get around this by using the portage SLOT mechanism, but that is not always a relevant solution, so instead you can call this from pkg_preinst. See also the preserve_old_lib_notify function.
- preserve_old_lib_notify <libs to notify> [more libs]
- Spit helpful messages about the libraries preserved by preserve_old_lib.
