23 You are correct, I'm using postfix and after emerge system is emailing me the notification.
24 grep -i mail /etc/make.conf
27 PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILURI="root /usr/sbin/sendmail"
28 PORTAGE_ELOG_MAILSUBJECT="package \${PACKAGE} merged on \${HOST} with notice"

31 but it does not contain any statement such as "inet_protocols"
33 It could be something to do with a new portage :-/
