It's not about the documentation. It's mostly about portage actually. Certain 
sets of USE flags create circular dependencies that portage doesn't deal with 
well or at all. Packages then fail to build and bugs get posted. What did the 
user do wrong? Nothing. What can the user do? Figure out where the circular 
dependency is and manually solve it. Should the steps on how to do that be 
added to the Stage1/2 install guide? I'd think not.
