After the package app-text/a2ps fails to compile on my system without an access violation, I need to issue the command

Code:
FEATURES="-sandbox" emerge a2ps


just to install the package. However, when running 'emerge -e world' I'm not around to emerge this one package with this feature set. Is there a way I can enable this feature for just this one package so I don't need to worry about it in the future?

Any input appreciated, thanks.

No package should ever fail because Portage is functioning correctly!
The sandbox is an essential part of Portage's security in emerging stuff safely and transparently (i.e. upgrade KDE with KDE running)
And - a text utility ?
Purlease!

File a bug ;-)

EDIT: as long as you don't file it as "a2ps compiles without an access violation" ;-)
