Default A seemingly bug found when emerging @preserved-rebuild

Hi, guys,

The problem is like this:

If "multislot" USE flag is enabled, the installed gcc's SLOT will be
$CHOST-$majorver.$minorver.$microver.
But in metadata cache, the SLOT is $majorver.$minorver.

So when emerge @preserved-rebuild, emerge will complain "can't find ebuild
for =sys-devel/gcc-$CHOST-$majorver.$minorver.$microver"

Is this a bug? or did I miss something here?
Thanks for your time!

The 'bug' here is that USE=multislot shouldn't exist. People using it
should be able to deal with resulting breakages on their own

not really. the SLOT syntax should be sufficiently flexible, but seeing as it
isnt, the result is hacks to work around a limited system.
