10 I'm not really asking for exhaustive documentation about USE flags,
11 just saying that even some fragmented documentation would be useful. I
12 don't expect a particular contributor to know everything about a
13 particular USE flag. (And, of course, no one is under any obligation
14 to do it.)
16 All this would be easier if upstream package developers would explain
17 what the different config options really entail. Most of the times,
18 "./configure --help" is not that helpful.
