Use ebuild command instead of emerge. man ebuild for more info.

In a nutshell:
Code:
ebuild <ebuild_file> fetch
ebuild <ebuild_file> unpack
ebuild <ebuild_file> compile
ebuild <ebuild_file> install
ebuild <ebuild_file> package

ebuild package still merges the files :) (I think)

It says in the manual that it doesn't install it, I'm gonna try it out.

no, but you can use the 'check' option to see if dependencies are satisfied.

Ok, actually I don't want the dependencies to be sastisfied :) its compiling for a different computer, my next main problem is how to I Get it to use different CFALGS CXXFLAGS and USE Variables only when calling ebuild <BLAHBLAH> package from the script that I'm writing? theres so many different config files. is there a way to specify them on the command line? or something like that?

Code:
export USE="your use variables here"


Should work for CFLAGS, etc. as well.

kliebar, how would I get them to go back to the regular ones after? Could I just use unset, then when portage tries to use it it will read the files again?
