I'm curious... I notice now that when I do a "usetool -d", a number of my packages have +bootstrap defined. It makes me wonder whether there is any benefit to recompiling those packages without it... any idea?

I think it shouldn't be set.
if you read description
usetool wrote:

bootstrap: !!internal use only!! DO NOT SET THIS FLAG YOURSELF!, used during original system bootstrapping


you did something particular or a normal gentoo install?
bye

"usetool -p" is showing the differences, and the difference for a few packages was that they were compiled with +bootstrap, rather than -bootstrap.

This seems normal to me, and the install was normal.

I'm just wondering if recompiling those packages with bootstrap _off_ would result in any improvements at all...

i don't know exactly but i think you could recomple using -bootstrap.

Maybe a gentoo developer could tell more about this.

All Packages compiled with +bootstrap are leftover from the original bootstrap process. So you never needed to compiled a new version of this package. This is totaly normal. I have one package with +bootstrap too. IMHO it would change nothing major, if you recompiled it without bootstrap. But you can do it if you want to get rid of the package in the difference check in usetool.

Quick bug: it doesn't like package.use unless there are no blank lines in the file. If there are:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/usetool", line 732, in ?
main()
File "/usr/local/bin/usetool", line 701, in main
if not options['ignore-packageuse']: read_package_use()
File "/usr/local/bin/usetool", line 228, in read_package_use
pkt=row_list[0]
IndexError: list index out of range

I think the new --newuse flag from portage makes the usetool obsolete, the only advantage I can see from usetool is that it shows exactly what flags are missing/extra.

that and
Code:
equery uses
shows use flags installed compareing them with ones avaliable.

What I would find useful is if usetool let me add useflags.
usetool -g gtk ; would add gtk to make.conf then fireoff emerge --newuse -auv world
usetool -l gtk -gtk2 dopewars ; would add games-strategy/dopewars gtk -gtk2 to package.use then fireoff emerge --newuse -uav dopewars

yes..
new portage makes usetool almost obsolete.

Anyway, i use it every day for inspecting only.

Sometimes i wonder which package "uses" a certain useflag or set of useflags. (-f function)

I think it's still usefull for adjusting package.use. (-ip , -po)
( i often emerge a package with this syntax: USE="blabla" emerge ... and when i'm satisified i use usetool -ip -po ...)

I prefer to leave usetool as safe as possible (don't wanna it to touch my files...)

Bye
