Hi Olivier,

ncompress is listed as an "RDEPEND" for those builds - i.e.  needed for 
building, but (when Portage is a little more advanced), disposable once 
the package is compiled and installed.  Your suggestion about adding it 
to the base system may still hold (though I assume there's a good reason 
ncompress is used for the ppc files instead of gunzip); but the ebuilds 
should work fine, since they'll pull ncompress in first.  If they don't, 
something is broken!

David
