Description witr 2006-12-15 07:17:34 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061214 Firefox/
Build Identifier: 

When upgrading the compiler, the Gentoo documentation recommends rebuilding the
toochain by doing "emerge -eav system".  On my system this builds nearly 300
packages, 90% of which are not toolchain packages.  This wastes time since all
of those same packages get rebuilt by a subsequent "emerge -eav world".

Instead, emerge should have a "toolchain" argument so that compiler upgrade
would use "emerge -eav toolchain", followed by "emerge -eav world".

Reproducible: Always
