I have found gentoo-sources utterly unreliable and finally settled on
using only vanilla sources, using the ebuild for convenience. The
Gentoo Security warning means essentially nothing to me; it’s not as
if the kernel project is out there purposely creating backdoors that
we can depend on Gentoo to nail shut.

(I’ve recently migrated my system from ~amd64 to amd64 -- yes, it can
be done -- but am still running 3.2.7 rather than the stable
3.2.2. Nevertheless I had to mask the latest ‘stable’ nvidia-drivers;
it made gkrellm crash. In the process of fixing that problem, I
noticed that OpenCL is around as a more generic alternative to CUDA,
so maybe use of that will pick up.)
