I usually emerge sync about once every week or so, and in the last few weeks it seems that the syncing and updating of the portage cache after it's gotten all the files has slowed down considerably. It used to take around 30-1 min and now it seems to take over 5 min although I have not timed it. Is this my machine or a general portage re-design that was chaged? Is there anything that can be done to speed up this process?

TIA,
ShadowEyez

If it's any consolation mine takes around that same time i.e 5mins @2.73GHz.

Yeah, I've noticed that "updating Portage cache" has slowed down a LOT in the past 2-3 weeks or so.

Mine seems to take 10-15 minutes or more.
