13 It depends on the profile you use, since that affects the defaults
14 for flags not set/unset in /etc. Which profile are you using, hopefully a
15 server one, and what does "emerge --info show". The output from emerge
16 --info shows the actual USE flags that will be used, which will be far
17 too many if you are using a desktop profile.
