Users who have their /etc/make.profile pointing to:

default-ppc
default-ppc-1.0
default-ppc-1.4

will get a message that their profile is deprecated and that upgrading the profile to 2004.1 is recommended. The procedure for updating the profile is:

rm /etc/make.profile && ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-ppc-2004.1 /etc/make.profile

The profile sets things default make.conf settings such as (USE, virtuals,...), it also defines what ebuilds are in emerge system.

'emerge info' shows your current profile.

Best regards,

Pieter Van den Abeele

It might be nice to add this to the 'Profile updating instructions' section on http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-upgrading.xml
