<p>The only thing I use outside of Portage is Tomcat.  Because I&#39;m a webapp developer and the Portage package is a big, steaming PITA.</p>
<p>Sorry about the top-post.  Gmail on Android.</p>

&gt; I only install things outside of portage into my home directory<br>
&gt; (pretending like I don&#39;t have root access), or very rarely install a<br>
&gt; single binary into /usr/local/bin. For anything else I&#39;ll make my own<br>
&gt; ebuild (or try to, anyway) and put it in my local overlay.<br>
<br>
I use local overlays (the main one also available on GitHub) more than<br>
going outside Portage. But it occurred to me that I also install<br>
calibre outside of Portage, in /usr/local; it’s notorious for not<br>
working when repackaged. And I do have parts of TeXLive installed by<br>
Portage because they get pulled in, but if I actually want to use TeX<br>
I have the real, complete TeXLive distribution installed in my home.<br>
