Hi all,

I have two question about gentoo:

I read this in an install howto: The bootstrap takes about 1 hour even 
on a fast machine... My bootsrap takes about 3 houn on Athlon 
XP1800+ Is that good? I think it too long. It compiles mc about half a 

I choose gentoo becouse I think I can choose, what i want to install. 
If I install mc (emerge app-misc/mc ), why does it install Xserver, 
Xfree86 etc. And for icewm why does it emerge gnome stuffs?
How can I owerride it?
I have a "new, just installed" system, with mc and icewm. it is about 
1Gb. Why?
