First let me say I have been using linux for years and for the past few years been using Mandrake. I started to find myself compiling by hand most of the packages I use the most (apache, php, mysql, samba, mplayer, etc) so when I discovered Gentoo it seemed like a natural progression for me. I can't express how impressed I am with the way everything is setup and works, very very nice. anyway on to the question...

For example when you emerge say kde, and it does 100 or so packages, at the end of compiling some of them it says along the lines of :

* do this now
* then do this
* some more advice

My question is how do I see, after I let everything compile all night, the advice that some of the packages give after the fact? I'm sure some of it was important otherwise it wouldn't be there. Are these appended to some file somewhere? I dont want to pipe everything through a regex or something...

Please see https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=131795, and https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-1955009.html#1955009. It's also going to be supported by Portage 2.1.

Moved from Installing Gentoo.
