9 It's also an excellent way to waste several days of one's life that you
10 will never get back :-)
12 If it's only a few packages affected, a much better idea would be to
13 grep through /var/wherever-portage-puts-it to find the CFLAGS for each
14 package installed, determine the ones that are not correct, and emerge
15 just those with 'emerge -n'. How to do this marvellous grepa nd emerge
16 is left as an exercise for the reader, as I'm much too lazy to figure
17 it out at almost midnight :-)
19 If it's most of the system that's affected, then yeah, emerge -e world
20 is probably easier.
