A quick grep of /usr/lib/portage/bin clues you in that every function
that is an external file does *not* die by itself. So, emake, do*, etc..
%% grep -c die * |grep -v ":0"
I believe this is because you can have those functions in a subshell and
then die won't behave predictably. I'm sure some PM people will correct
me if I am wrong. ;)
