Just a quick note -- I've just committed install-mask-0.0.1 to gx86.
You can use it to quickly set and apply INSTALL_MASK setting so that
you can get rid of the all files you don't want.
The tool is very simple to use. It comes with a few pre-set locations
so you don't need to type in exact paths.
To add a path to INSTALL_MASK use -a:
install-mask -a systemd
install-mask -a bash-completion
install-mask -a /foo/bar
Removal is done through -d, info can be printed using -i (this will
explain preset names as well).
It can also generate rebuild list to apply INSTALL_MASK changes. After
adding new masks, you can do:
emerge -1v $(install-mask -r)
to rebuild all affected packages. You can also manually 'rm -r'
respective paths -- 'install-mask -r' will not complain about
Sadly, due to bug #364633  doing the opposite is not possible right
now. When it's fixed, it will require specifying the paths manually (at
least in this version):
emerge -1v $(install-mask -r bash-completion)
