Default Mistaken gcc -unmerge with a twist

I was in the final stages of installing gentoo when I unmerged the old
gcc before installing the new. My next step was going to be an emerge
system world and I'd hate to have to restart from scratch again. I do
have another machine, similar (both ~x86), and wonder if I can package
up the gcc on there, whether (equery files; tar cf) or something more
specific to gentoo, and unpackage it on the new machine.

Don't do that; use quickpkg.* info emerge for details.

Then add buildsyspkg to features to make it more difficult to screw
yourself in the future.

Thanks, works like a charm ... so far :-) emerge gcc system world
will take a while longer, but at least I am back in operation.

That's handy, wish I'd known about it before. Been a while since I
checked FEATURES. Are any of the others useful? Some like suid and
strict look interesting, but not necessarily useful.
