I'm on ~amd64.
dev-scheme/racket-5.1 was built with the following:
USE="X cairo foreign (multilib) opengl -backtrace -cgc -doc -futures
-places -plain -profile -sgc -slatex -static"

The only other suggestion I'd offer is regarding the backtrace,
futures, and places flags.  At least on 5.0.2, one or more of these
cause the build to hang forever at 100% CPU.  Only when I finally gave
up and killed the build did I notice the ewarn that these flags can
cause that.  I realize there's only so much we can protect people from
themselves, but it would have been nice if it made me acknowledge that
I intended to use a risky flag.  Ideally, we'd just fix whatever
causes it to hang, but that's an upstream issue - could we maybe just
mask those flags?  Although, I haven't tested them on 5.1 yet to see
if they're even still a problem...

Cyprien, I'd be happy to help test with other configurations.  Thanks
for your work.

-Neil
