Subject: [gentoo-admin] emerge problem

I have gentoo installed on a Cyrix 686 133Mhz ... slow, but works nice, 
and with optimization flags set, seems flying ;)
Anyway, I always noticed (even with others distrib) that on that 
computer long compilations break at some points
with Segmentation Fault (SIG 11). But as soon as you restart the 
compilation from where you were, it continues, and
finishes the build. Is it possible to tell emerge not to clean the 
package you try to update, or hack the emerge
scripts to be able to specify an error count (and until the error count 
is not reached, retry to relaunch the build
without cleaning it).

Thanks a lot
