stalione, what good is emerge -k when envtually, one has to do it the
gentoo way, that is compile from source? GRP install may be a swift way
to get going, but, at the end of the day, the gentoo way rules. and this is the
strength of gentoo linux

Well, actually the use of emerge -k is quite broad. Mind you when people are developing modules ontop of xfree. They'd be damn stupid if they hadden't build a binary package of xfree. Once they screw things up it's nice to reinstall their latest binary build instead of compiling for over an hour ;)
