Tried searching and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. I was just curious if this will work in my make.conf? Or do I need to remove the custom USE titles?

Code:
USE="gnome gtk dbus X bash-completion alsa"
PROCUSE="${USE} mmx sse sse2 sse3 ssse3"
NOUSE="${PROCUSE} -kde -qt4 -plasma -bluetooth -cups"


OR does it need to be like this:

Code:
USE=""
USE="${USE} gnome gtk dbus X alsa bash-completion mmx sse sse2 sse3 ssse3"
USE="${USE} -kde -qt4 -plasma -bluetooth -cups"

?

EDIT: Your example would only use flags set in first line the other variables would be assigned (have values) that portage wouldn;t know to use
unless you hacked the .py files to use them.

Code:
# General USE flags
USE="gnome gtk dbus X bash-completion alsa"
# Processor USE flags
USE="${USE} mmx sse sse2 sse3 ssse3"
# Disabled USE flags
USE="${USE} -kde -qt4 -plasma -bluetooth -cups"


OR
Code:
# General USE flags
GENUSE="gnome gtk dbus X bash-completion alsa"
# Processor USE flags
PROCUSE="mmx sse sse2 sse3 ssse3"
# Disabled USE flags
NOUSE="-kde -qt4 -plasma -bluetooth -cups"
USE="${GENUSE} ${PROCUSE} ${NOUSE}"

Exactly what I was looking for, thank you my man ;) I'm a little bit OCD when it comes to config files heh

I recommend you use only the second style. Any definitions in /etc/make.conf affect the environment in which ebuilds run. I have seen people post problem reports that were traced back to them polluting their environment with "clever" custom names that happened to interact with various build systems.

Just add:
Code:
unset GENUSE PROCUSE NOUSE

after the last line in dwbowyer's second example.

Or use:
Code:
# Fubar flags:
USE+=' foo bar -baz'

I'm assuming make.conf allows bash: if not, forget this part. :)

Note that there is a space there. If you want to be anal, at the end, add:
Code:
USE=${USE# }

..to get rid of any extra space that might be at the front.
