12 It is "predictable" behaviour and such not a bug. What you could do is get a
13 list of everything to be included in the compile, and put it in a file (after
14 removing the colors)
15 Then you could make some smart grep on the emerge log (you did log, didn't you
16 ;-) ) to check everything that has allready been compiled. Subtract those
17 files (remove every compiled package from the world file) and supposed the
18 filename is TOBUILD you do a
19 emerge `cat TOBUILD`

23 ps. I thought renaming the /var/db/pkg directory and doing an emerge -u world
24 should also work, but for me (the pretend) it only wants to emerge system.
25 Could that be a bug?
