Default tbz2 "flag"

I have two Gentoo Hosts that are (should be) 100% equal except on the
following points:
a) Hostname
b) IP
c) One Host has FEATURES="fixpackages buildpkg" while the other has
FEATURES="fixpackages"

As far as I know I have no other differences between the systems (same USE
flags, same packages installed), but still I can see one difference:
For instance:

Host-A:
# eix -I portage-uti
[i] app-portage/portage-utils
Available versions: 0.2.1{tbz2} 0.3.1{tbz2} ~0.4 {static}
Installed versions: 0.3.1{tbz2}(20:46:47 06/10/10)(-static)
Homepage: http://www.gentoo.org/
Description: small and fast portage helper tools written in C

Host-B:
# eix -I portage-utils
[i] app-portage/portage-utils
Available versions: 0.2.1 0.3.1 ~0.4 {static}
Installed versions: 0.3.1(20:47:10 06/10/10)(-static)
Homepage: http://www.gentoo.org/
Description: small and fast portage helper tools written in C


As you can see on host-A there is a tbz2 "flag" but on host-B there is not
(portage-utils is just one example there are a lot more).
I have probably missed something easy, but I can not figure out how to enable
this "flag" on host-B.

Suggestions?

That only means that host A is using precompiled binaries, the ones
builded in host B I suppose. If you also compile the packages in host
A, the tbz2 flag will disappear.

Difference c) is causing this. Eix shows for which package there is a binary
package stored as tbz2 archive.

OK, that explains it. Host-A is designed as a "build host" and host-B shall es
those "prebuild" binaries in the future.
Thanks!
