Don't think it's in the docs; I know about it from reading my emerge
output. The recommendation to run /usr/sbin/python-updater is in the
einfo displayed at the end of a Python emerge (in the case you just
updated from 2.2.x to 2.3.x). So I remembered that such a utility
existed-- didn't remember the name, but remembered that I had seen it in
the einfo, so I just opened up the (latest) Python ebuild in nano and
copied it into the mail (yeah, I cheat ;) ).
Sorry that wasn't any help, though... I'm out of ideas other than
unmerge gentoolkit completely, and remerge it, short of a very very
thorough comparison of the system where it works to the system where it
doesn't... which is worse than looking for a needle in a haystack, since
at least in the latter case, you know what you're looking for.
