Anyone know what this means and how to update them?

GNU info directory index is up-to-date
IMPORTANT: 51 config files in /etc need updating
Type emerge --help config to learn how to update config files

Sorry I am a newbie at this and don't want to mess anything up.

Regards,
Beenie

A search in Portage & Programming (or Duplicates) should turn up several threads. There is also a FAQ (FAQ Forum) on the topic.
