Default Which log file do all the emerge messages get saved in?

Evening, all.

The messages which stream by during an emerge, in particular the
warnings etc. which are repeated at the end of a single emerge
operation. They're accumulated in a log file somewhere, aren't they?

I can't find this file anymore. I've looked in /var/log,
/var/lib/portage, but find nothing.

Would some kind soul please identify this log file for me. Thanks!

... and emerge elogv. Makes reading portage info/warns/errors easier thanks to its colorful ncurses interface :-)
