Ok, with shame I think I can say I learned something.  Since progressive 
inherits from macos I consider it to be wrong to have collision-protect 
USE flags in the macos/use.mask file.  Instead they should go into the 
macos/10.[34]/use.mask files.  I corrected this issue already in CVS. 
If someone still has some nice comment on this, please say so.
