Subject: [gentoo-user] Why are packages not merged binary

1 Hi,
3 I have several machines of the same architecture so I build using distcc
4 and --buildpkg and then try to emerge -uk on the other boxes. However
5 there are differences in useflags so I understand, that in some cases
6 on the 2nd or 3rd box the package has to be rebuilt. What I still don't get
7 is: How can I recognize _why_ a package is not merged from the binary.
8 emerge -uDkvp --binpkg-respect-use y shows the use flags in colors but
9 I don't know how to read this.
11 Also: Are packages with the bindist useflag are automatically exempt from
12 being binary merged if -bindist is given?
14 Cheers and merry Xmas,
16 Konstantin
