In the servers profile... logrotate would be nice for obvious reasons on servers. chroot might be nice, as long as it is not too invasive (requires lots of extra configuration of the packages that utilize it). My main concern is not really what USE flags need to be added as opposed to what USE flags might need to be removed. In my opinion a generic server profile needs to be as generic as possible. For example, cups foomatic gpm and ldap from dev/2006.1/make.defaults should not go into a generic server profile because in some cases they make significant differences in how subsequent packages will be configured - samba and apache2 for examples. None of my servers have pointing devices, gpm is not only useless in this situation, it introduces additional unnecessary maintenance. mailwrapper is another example of something that only serves to give me headaches ;) I noticed you have STAGE1_USE="nptl nptlonly", does that mean that the CHOST will need to be changed in stage1 tarballs?
