9 You will want to reconsider your enabling of bindist and doc.
11 bindist is enabled by default in stage3 tarballs due to a bug [1] in
12 catalyst. It is known to cause numerous issues, and is not useful for
13 end-user systems.
15 doc generally enables generation of documentation end-users will not
16 require, like developer docs and complete project websites for offline
17 reference. If you find yourself requiring documentation for a specific
18 package, you are better off enabling the doc useflag for that specific
19 package in /etc/portage/package.use . Doc generation pulls in many
20 otherwise unneccesary dependencies in order to generate the
21 documentation, and is known to cause many circular dependencies due to
22 eg. documentation generating software needing itself to generate its own
23 documentation.
25 A general piece of advice: You might not want to set a long string of
26 USE flags globally immediately in your first install, rather pick a
27 profile and adjust flags when/if the defaults don't suit you. Always
28 use '-a' with emerge to review the use flags on packages to be
29 installed.
