14 Ran that and the list is actually pretty short. I go with defaults
15 unless it is something that is specific to my setup. Such as -gnome or
16 kde since I don't use the former but do use the later. Sometimes when I
17 emerge something that conflicts, I have to pick one over the other and
18 portage lets me know that. That usually goes in package.use which is
19 also a small file.
21 So, doesn't seem to help much here. Did find a new command tho. ;-)
