Daniel Robbins released a new version of portage last night. 'emerge update --world' will now automagically update all installed packages to their latest versions. This allows me to sort of "make tod's world" to use a BSD analogy, :). Gentoo is really shaping up to be a very nice distribution. I have created a GNOME profile based on the Gnome Installation Guide, but the new portage probably supplants its usefulness. Still might be useful for an initial merge of everything Gnome though.

Submitted a ghex ebuild and found a simple dependency conflict bug related to freetype-1.3.1 between the abiword and gfontview ebuilds
