10 Gentoo-wiki is of limited reliability, because there are not enough people with time to edit it. It's very possible that article is out of date - if you're talking about this page <> then notice that it's barely been edited since it was "imported from the archives" a year ago. The Great Gentoo Wiki Data Loss was another year before that, so deity only knows how old that information is.
