> "emerge --newuse world" is _very_ helpful here ;-)
Hmmm. Very interesting! 'emerge --newuse -p world' gives me a long list of
packages, some of which aren't even installed, and which probably aren't
depended by anything else. This is odd.
This list also includes updates on a number of packages which are apparently
slipping through the cracks when I do a daily 'emerge -u world'. I've been
noticing this for some time now. Some packages apparently didn't get
registered with 'world' when they're built, and I come on them from time to
time by chance and notice the version differences between what's installed
and what's available.
'emerge --newuse -u -p world' gives me a longer list, which is apparently a
superset of the above. I would expect the list to be shorter.
