read what Walter written till the very end ;)
Problem is not what to *add* to the default profile, but rather that you
have to *remove* tons of flags from it to have something compact.
As he already mentioned usually USE="-*" is the way to start.
There were plans once among the cluster herd's members to write
minimalistic profile for hpc server/node and ha cluster that would
inherit from a "barebone" server profile. We just never got to it as
demand wasn't that high. Maybe it's time to revisit the problem.
