7 You can use "emerge --keep-going" flag for portage-2.2 or
8 "emerge --resume --skip-first" for earlier versions to update
9 everything else.
10 There's also some simple sh-scripts for emulating "--keep-going"
11 functionality for earlier portage versions. I can't remember any
12 specific names, but I'm sure google should be able to help here.
14 If the problem is specific to this exact version of package (gmp
15 usually builds, but 4.3.1 fails) and the update itself is not critical
16 to you (like when you don't even know what it'll bring) then you can
17 just ignore it altogether - there's a good chance 4.3.2 or 4.4.0 or
18 whatever-next-version-is will compile cleanly.
