Hello. When emerge fails, it is hard to type 'less /var/tmp/portage/cat/packages/temp/build.log', when you don't use X.
When emerge fails to single package, please define a shell env variable blog=/path/to/log, so after emerge I can type 'less $blog' and read logs. Thanks
It is not possible to set environment variables in spawning shell from a subprocess. You can use tab-completion to get the path typed easier though.
