I don't see the difference...

Of course things can break. Even "stable" packages break sometimes. And 
of course there will be bug reports. Ain't that an important (and 
desired) part of the Gentoo development process? To know what does and 
what does not work together? And find out the reason when they don't?

In <http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-x86-install.xml>, step 11 is 
where I set up my make.conf, and step 12 is where bootstraping takes 
place. I see no reason for step 12 to ignore what was set up in step 11.


Also, please read comment #3 in the bug report I cited earlier:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11374#c3
It contains many of the reasons why I believe make.conf should _never_ 
be ignored.
