I installed Gentoo with Midnight Commander, (app-misc/mc) etc. from scratch.

Midnight Commander fails to install:
/usr/share/mc/mc-wrapper.csh
/usr/share/mc/mc-wrapper.sh
/usr/share/mc/mc.charsets
/usr/share/mc/mc.csh
/usr/share/mc/mc.sh

This prevents Midnight Commander to be started from a terminal.

Is this bug or a new feature?

What do you mean "from scratch"?

Midnight Commander is in Portage (emerge app-misc/mc) and it seems to work fine. In /usr/share/mc I just see:
Code:
doujima:/usr/share/mc$ ls -al
total 36
drwxr-xr-x   7 root root 4096 Jan  2 10:46 ./
drwxr-xr-x 204 root root 4096 Feb 17 03:31 ../
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Feb 16  2012 examples/
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan  2 10:46 help/
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan  2 10:46 hints/
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  227 Jan  2 10:46 mc.charsets
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 2430 Jan  2 10:46 mc.lib
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan  2 10:46 skins/
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan  2 10:46 syntax/

It seems to work for me though. I have app-misc/mc-4.8.13 installed, currently.

The wrapper scripts appear to be in /usr/libexec/mc - not sure if this matters or not?

I mean with "installing from scratch" complete new installation on a new system.

The problem may have been caused because I installed with profile 1 without X and had -X in make.conf USE=.. Also the version of was mc-4.8.11 or mc-4.8.12.

Will verify when I do the next installation.
