A word of warning on this.
Simply capturing the USE flags is not enough, the libraries that a
binary is linked against can cause problems as well, as the dependency
imposed by linking is much stricter than the RDEPEND in the ebuild.
tcpdump for example has:
RDEPEND="... ssl? ( >=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.6m )"
But if you built and linked against openssl-0.9.7*, then upgraded to
openssl-0.9.8, you can expect breakage.
Similar things happened with binaries linked against libmysqlclient in
As to my own take on a solution to the problem for work stuff, we simply
maintain one chroot per unique environment (we only have 5 envs), and
build in the chroot, then use those binpkgs on the boxes.
