Hi,

switching to a new machine is good opportunity to do
house-cleaning.

I wonder what emerge --emptytree does when several versions of some
packages like kde or gcc are installed (in different slots).
The entry in the 'world' file does not contain the slot info.

Is there any danger it will leave my machine with only one version
of each package?

Many thanks for your help,
Helmut.
