Sorry, must've been the fever and cold I've been having for the last
couple of days. But true, fever or no fever, always check my typing,
someone off the Intertubes might offer you some clever equivalent of
"rm -rf /"!
One thing to remember is that portage devs are probably ingenious and
lazy (in the positive sense), so they probably do things in a similar
way under /usr/portage and /etc/portage. This gives hints of the
correct paths and file names, maybe even the syntaxes (although in
this case the -dvdnav was a bit unexpected and illogical IMHO).
Of course, /usr/portage has those different sub-directories for, e.g.,
base and many different platforms, but you can keep /etc/portage
"flat". Or this is just my deduction after running Gentoo for 5-6
years, I haven't actually touched the python code much and probably
not pushed the configurations too far either.
I'm very happy if someone points out a "typo" in my logic here -- I'm
sure a little embarrassment early on will save plenty of my time in
