Default emerge source code but don't build?

Hi,
Is there an option in emerge to download and create the source code
tree for an application, but then stop at that point, don't build the
app and leave the source code tree in place so that I can look at it?

Thanks,
Mark

Probably not. But you can use the ebuild command:

ebuild /path/to/category/package.ebuild unpack

Read the man page, I'm not sure if things like fetching will be done when
necessary.

ebuild ${PORTDIR}/cat/pkg/pkg-ver.ebuild unpack
