checkinstall description.

when i use checkinstall it doesnt put the description of what i installed next to the package name (in pkgtool), and i DID put the description in while runing checkinstall.

so it will only say like "gentoo-#.#.#-i386" and the description is blank.

am i suposed to put the description on the first or second line they tell me to use when describing it?
