9 that is only relevant for binary (rpm) distros, which do not install header
10 files per default (which is pretty sick and perverted).
12 With gentoo, everything is installed, so you don't need to install 'dev'
13 packages. If you have zlib and python (and you havwe zlib and python, or
14 you'd not be able to install gentoo at all), everything is fine.
