No, if you follow the how-to, you'll build a development environment  
which does all the compiling, and all the packages you build will be  
build as binaries. Then when you install into the actual embedded  
file system, it just uncompresses the binary package into the  
specified directory, like this:

ROOT=/embedded_fs emerge -K mypackage

Since all emerge is doing (effectively) is untaring into the  
directory, the includes within that directory are never used. So you  
can safely remove:


But you obviously don't want to remove /usr/include from the chroot'd  
development environment.

Yeah, they are 0 bytes, but they clutter everything up. I think  
the .keep files exist to keep programs from trimming empty  
directories from a directory tree.
