4 A grep '!!' /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc reveals the following:
5
6 bootstrap - !!internal use only!! DO NOT SET THIS FLAG YOURSELF!, used during
7 original system bootstrapping [make stage2]
8 build - !!internal use only!! DO NOT SET THIS FLAG YOURSELF!, used for
9 creating build images and the first half of bootstrapping [make stage1]
10 livecd - !!internal use only!! DO NOT SET THIS FLAG YOURSELF!, used during
11 livecd building.
12 selinux - !!internal use only!! Security Enhanced Linux support, this must be
13 set by the selinux profile or breakage will occur
14 static - !!do not set this during bootstrap!! Causes binaries to be statically
15 linked instead of dynamically

17 I think these internal use only use flags should have names that indicate
18 that, for example: INTERNALUSE_bootstrap. This would help in recognizing them
19 and at the same time free those names for normal use. The newest GHC is now
20 forced to use "ghcbootstrap" and I plan on adding similar support to SBCL for
21 the next release.

23 It's probably a big pain to do this.
