1 What combination of use flags do the GRPs use? The ones that would be in the default make.conf upon installation of v1.4? Different ones depending on the whims of the maintainer of that GRP app? If the former... then use those flags on all the prebuilt bzip2s. Make it so I can give up the bleeding edge on something for the ability to have a working app without waiting an hour to compile :)
