13 Emerge did this, when confcache was installed and FEATURES=confcache was
14 set. But I guess this only works well with once cache file per package,
15 not with a global cache that is being used during all emerges.
16 The configure script tests for lots of features, each test has a name. But
17 there is no global naming scheme, so tests for different features can have
18 the same name in different packages. I think this is why it did not work
19 so well.
