I was rather thinking to have less. Default settings for 10.0: USE="acl amd64 berkdb bzip2 cli cracklib crypt cups cxx dri fortran gdbm gpm iconv ipv6 mmx modules mudflap multilib ncurses nls nptl nptlonly openmp pam pcre perl pppd python readline session sse sse2 ssl sysfs tcpd unicode xorg zlib" cups, ipv6, perl, xorg, nls, pam, etc... do we need them? tbh I build up my clusters from "-*" because default is to bloated... Also setting things like FEATURES="nodoc noman noinfo nonews" would be nice on nodes. Cheers, Kacper
