I don't recall adding any "optimization" options beyond Gentoo's own defaults.If you are running KDE, well, I'm sure you already know the pain involved in emerging it. (no error message)Tried to re-emerge portage (or emerge sync) and get this:/usr/bin/python: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc 5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Safe to say, this thing is hosed... Until some of the more recent portage versions -u caused some headaches for me. Just world, system, or the package with a -D to catch some non world deps sometimes. Not even sure why they leave it in there with all the warnings about it.
