 I just received the commit message, thanks!
 Hmm for this, I agree that "emerge --info" is not really useful with
 pkgsrc.  However I'm not sure what this command outputs exactly (lists
 packages? Statistics, Gentoo distribution version?), and a search
 didn't easily provide me with an output example from it.  We could
 probably assume that it lists the installed packages, in which case
 pkg_info would indeed be a better choice...  On the other hand, it's
 also very easy to use "pkg_info | wgetpaste" as well.
 Perhaps that we could provide an alternative command via the default
 configuration file, i.e.:
 INFO_COMMAND="uname -smr && pkg_info"
 But there is a problem, even with a single command such as uname -smr,
 an error is generated when I try it:
 uname: unknown option -- -
 usage: uname [-amnprsv]
 So possibly a fix to the script would be necessary...
