We're working on improving hardware support. The main reason there's no PCMCIA
support is that I don't have a laptop. So, I can't really test any PCMCIA stuff.

When you do this:
# ebuild foo-1.2.ebuild merge
The sources for foo-1.2 will be automatically downloaded either from the Gentoo
Linux mirror, or from the original download site. The downloaded files are
stored in /usr/portage/distfiles. We'll most likely be providing a "sources"
ISO image soon for those who don't have a fairly decent link to the Internet.
