it seems that with a recent portage upgrade (I'm using 2.0.50-r11) a
whole lot of USE flags have disappeared from the make.defaults in ppc
2004.x profiles. (I just noticed this just today when emerge -UDp all
of a sudden wanted to install gnome-base/orbit which I never needed
So I wonder what might be the reason for this significant truncation
of USE in make.defaults, especially since it seems that the x86
profiles didn't change in a similar way. Has this been announced
somewhere and I just missed it?
As a side note, for some packages I keep seeing duplicate use flags
with emerge -v for quite some time now. For instance, here is the
output of emerge -pv mozilla (lines wrapped for readability):

It's not e big deal and doesn't seem to cause any problems, but it's
still a little confusing ;)
