Q: Can portage build one package while downloading others?

A: This is completely possible and even recommended for users with slow or intermittent internet connection. From portage-2.0.51 it has been possible to emerge -f <package> in one terminal while emerging the package in another.

If you wish to perform a 'one-liner' and not use two terminals, you can "(emerge -f <package> &) && emerge <package>"
Users with portage-2.1* can add FEATURES="parallel-fetch" to /etc/make.conf so that portage will automatically fetch the sources in parallel with the merge.

2004-10-21: portage-2.0.51 updates
2006-02-15: complete rewrite to reflect the current version of portage - mark_alec
