Can someone tell me where the correct location for the make.conf file is now supposed to be?

I see in the thread below it is now in /etc/portage/make.conf.

I have already created a new one in the /etc/make.conf and have performed a "emerge -av1 binutils gcc glibc".

So which make.conf will it actually be using ?

Not to get in a rant but I already had to sort the RC issue by using

Code:

mkdir -p /var/spool/mail
mkdir -p /run/lock


At least the sshd issue a few weeks back has been resolved

Looks to still be using /etc/make.conf at least firstly in any event.
Does it default to /etc/portage/make.conf if above is not present?

First /etc/make.conf, then /etc/portage/make.conf. I personally moved it.
From the news:
Code:

  Title                     make.conf and make.profile move
  Author                    Jorge Manuel B. S. Vicetto <jmbsvicetto@gentoo.org>

  Revision                  1

Starting next week, new stages will have make.conf and make.profile
moved from /etc to /etc/portage. This is a change in the installation
defaults, that will only affect new installs so it doesn't affect
current systems.

Current users don't need to do anything. But if you want to follow the
preferred location, you may want to take the chance to move the files
in your system(s) to the new location.

Thanks gabrielg

Anyone know or have some background as to why? is it perhaps to make Gentoo/portage more modular.

I think the motivation was to centralise portage configuration.

Being far too used to typing /etc/make.conf myself, I just do a
# ln -sv /etc/portage/make.conf /etc/make.conf

id read somewhere this would be problematic, as it would cause it to be sourced twice. or something.

found the thread as i was typing this. YMMV

I'll add that it makes more sense to have it in /etc/portage, since portage is the only thing that reads it - make itself doesn't.
