Okay, haven't seen any mention of alt on this list, I suppose someone 
will keep us updated once any decision is made

Ouch, ok. I wish there was some link on the standard install docs page 
because I can't imagine people non-familiar with gentoo.org structure to 
be able to find that one. Thanks for the info anyway

Okay, so I guess noboby really tried it. I asked before trying by myself 
because it's long to compile, and I saw on a KDE on OS/X guide 
mentionned on /. and OSNews some days ago that it was better to not use 
Apple X11 (but it was fink packages, so maybe it's different here).
Anyway, I'll try and report any problems, if someone ever want to tackle 
them.
