Patch USES=linux to ERROR if a Linux package is missing
Is a port specifies a Linux package that does not exist then USES=linux silently ignores that package, instead of generating an ERROR for a non-existent dependency.
The attached patch adds that safeguard.
Would you like an exp-run for this?
Feel free to commit, but perhaps it's better to use DEV_ERROR? Then users won't see build problems because of this.

USES=linux: DEV_ERROR if linux package does not exist

Can/should this be MFH'd ?
It's not that important is it?
Also, there are almost no direct commits to the quarterly branch, so it will most certainly never be triggered.
Committed a while ago.
