It would be nice if I could set it to deactivate the screensaver (or better yet, set it to blank), while Portage is compiling software. My screensaver is quite computationally heavy...

If you're using xscreensaver, check the manual for xscreensaver-command, it allows control from the command line. You could probably wrap emerge in a function / script to automatically do this.
