As of paludis 0.66.0 we now prevent packages from installing to invalid


After upgrading paludis you will see the following error for packages that
install to invalid directories:

    !!! Not allowed to merge '/source' to '/destination'

Either the package in question needs to be fixed to not install to /destination
or it needs to override it by calling exdirectory in the pkg_setup phase. For
packages that already use exdirectory you will start seeing `exdirectory:
command not found` errors if your paludis is old.
