$ grep DEFAULT /etc/make.conf
EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--ask --verbose --tree"
And when I run:
revdep-rebuild --library libjpeg.so.62
... it runs rebuilding without asking me.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo 'EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--ask --verbose --tree"' > /etc/make.conf
2. revdep-rebuild (should have some task to be done)
Runs rebuilding without asking me.
It should show me the tree of packages that will be rebuilt and ask for confirmation.

Hello, thanks for fast reply.
As I remember you said previously in private e-mail to me that there're some options that can harm revdep-rebuild work.
I believe that such options could easily be filtered in the script, or vice-versa, "safe" options could be filtered and added to the final emerge command. If you feel no desire to make this work, I will assist you with pleasure.
Just list what emerge options are harmful.
Please also see bug #282474 where the lead maintainer for gentoolkit addresses the issue, but I guess you could raise the issue on the gentoo-portage-dev ML to argue for accepting certain safe flags.
The variable PORTAGE_NICENESS is ignored aswell, leading the system to be partially useless because of it (loosing interactiveness; I can't even watch a movie in mplayer because it has the same nice-priority)
P.S. I've raised the question in gentoo-portage-dev list, but it seems the author of the utility is to busy to maintain it.
Please open a new bug for the PORTAGE_NICENESS value. However, my testing shows that it is being honored, so I don't know why it would not be working for you. In the niw bug, please include your emerge --info and the output of "portageq envvar PORTAGE_NICENESS"

I did a mistake when saying about PORTAGE_NICENESS is ignored. It's not ignored, but it's calculated in a wrong way, leading emerge to be run with the same nice level as my desktop applications.
