Some ebuilds have post-installation instructions you're supposed to execute. Here's an example from gettext-0.14.2.ebuild:

ewarn "Any package that linked against the previous version"
ewarn "of gettext will have to be rebuilt."
ewarn "Please 'emerge gentoolkit' and run:"
ewarn "revdep-rebuild --soname libintl.so.2"

Postgresql and perl both have post-install instructions, too, so it's not always a matter of running "revdep-rebuild".

That's no problem if you're just emerging gettext, but when gettext is just one package out of a dozen that are getting installed, there's no way I'll spot all the post-install instructions. Is there any way to get emerge to print out all the post-install notes for all the packages it installs in a given run?

Thank you.

You can let portage write all its messages to log files by putting this into /etc/make.conf
Code:
PORT_LOGDIR=/var/log/portage

(The directory may be changed)

Then either inspect these files manually or use a tool like portlog-info (see here https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-67849.html)
