From the emerge man-page:

   --usepkg (-k)
          Tells  emerge  to use binary packages (from $PKGDIR) if they are
          available, thus possibly avoiding some time-consuming  compiles.
          This   option   is  useful  for  CD  installs;  you  can  export
          PKGDIR=/mnt/cdrom/packages and then  use  this  option  to  have
          emerge  "pull"  binary  packages from the CD in order to satisfy
          dependencies.

My biggest problem is the wording
 "to use binary packages (from $PKGDIR) >>if<< they are available"

It hints that if a newer ebuild is availble it will still be compiled,
and not taken from the pre-compiled repository.

If I am wrong please let me know ;)
