I don't see the difference...

Of course things can break. Even "stable" packages break sometimes. And of course there will be bug reports. Ain't that an important (and desired) part of the Gentoo development process? To know what does and what does not work together? And find out the reason when they don't?

In <>, step 11 is where I set up my make.conf, and step 12 is where bootstraping takes place. I see no reason for step 12 to ignore what was set up in step 11. Also, please read comment #3 in the bug report I cited earlier: It contains many of the reasons why I believe make.conf should _never_ be ignored.
