11 All logs go into $PORT_LOGDIR (usually /var/log/portage) if it is
12 defined. These are the full output of each emerge command, plus another
13 file containing the elog/ewarn/einfo/error output. The ELOG files contain
14 only the e-messages you specify and go in $PORT_LOGDIR/elog. So you
15 should be seeing logfiles in both if everything is working correctly.
17 Note that not all ebuilds output e-messages, so you won't get ELOG info
18 for every package you emerge.
