What is your understanding of desktop env? Did you mean running the env command?

Removed USE= from /etc/portage/make.conf
Having /etc/portage/package.use as a file starting with
/etc/portage/package.use:
*/* -bluetooth -dbus -introspection -ldap -libnotify -nls -pam -udisks

app-misc/emelfm2 -policykit
app-office/libreoffice java

# required by app-office/texstudio-2.10.2::gentoo
>=dev-libs/quazip-0.7.1 -qt4 qt5
>=dev-qt/qtsingleapplication-2.6.1_p20150629 qt5
>=dev-qt/qtlockedfile-2.4.1_p20150629 qt5
And more such blocks added by emerge -avt <package name> automatically.

I don't use a desktop environment currently, but I like GNOME. Right now I'm using the i3 window manager.

No DE - I'm one of the like....6 or 7 Qtile users in the world!

Code:
USE="X"


Why? Two primary reasons:

First, I am completely noob. Seeing other people's USE flags range anywhere from almost none to almost all of them is really confusing to me. I like less things to manage and think about, so I went with the minimum I knew I'd be using frequently in many applications. It turned out to be just X.

Second, who has time to go through however many hundreds of USE flags there are to research and make a decision on each one? Not me! I tried, but got burned out after about 20 minutes.

EDIT:
So after reading the reply below, I realized I didn't properly read the OP so didn't use the proper command...

USE="X a52 aac acl acpi alsa amd64 berkdb bluetooth branding bzip2 cairo cdda cdr cli consolekit cracklib crypt cups cxx dbus dri dts dvd dvdr emboss encode exif fam firefox flac fortran gdbm gif glamor gpm gtk hardened iconv ipv6 jpeg lcms ldap libnotify mad mng modules mp3 mp4 mpeg multilib ncurses nls nptl ogg opengl openmp pam pango pcre pdf png policykit ppds pulseaudio qt3support qt4 readline sdl seccomp session spell ssl startup-notification steamruntime svg tcpd tiff truetype udev udisks unicode upower usb vorbis wxwidgets x264 xattr xcb xml xv xvid zlib" ABI_X86="64" ALSA_CARDS="ali5451 als4000 atiixp atiixp-modem bt87x ca0106 cmipci emu10k1x ens1370 ens1371 es1938 es1968 fm801 hda-intel intel8x0 intel8x0m maestro3 trident usb-audio via82xx via82xx-modem ymfpci" APACHE2_MODULES="authn_core authz_core socache_shmcb unixd actions alias auth_basic authn_alias authn_anon authn_dbm authn_default authn_file authz_dbm authz_default authz_groupfile authz_host authz_owner authz_user autoindex cache cgi cgid dav dav_fs dav_lock deflate dir disk_cache env expires ext_filter file_cache filter headers include info log_config logio mem_cache mime mime_magic negotiation rewrite setenvif speling status unique_id userdir usertrack vhost_alias" CALLIGRA_FEATURES="kexi words flow plan sheets stage tables krita karbon braindump author" COLLECTD_PLUGINS="df interface irq load memory rrdtool swap syslog" CPU_FLAGS_X86="aes avx avx2 f16c fma3 mmx mmxext popcnt sse sse2 sse3 sse4_1 sse4_2 ssse3" ELIBC="glibc" GPSD_PROTOCOLS="ashtech aivdm earthmate evermore fv18 garmin garmintxt gpsclock isync itrax mtk3301 nmea ntrip navcom oceanserver oldstyle oncore rtcm104v2 rtcm104v3 sirf skytraq superstar2 timing tsip tripmate tnt ublox ubx" GRUB_PLATFORMS="efi-64" INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics" KERNEL="linux" LCD_DEVICES="bayrad cfontz cfontz633 glk hd44780 lb216 lcdm001 mtxorb ncurses text" LIBREOFFICE_EXTENSIONS="presenter-console presenter-minimizer" OFFICE_IMPLEMENTATION="libreoffice" PHP_TARGETS="php5-6" POSTGRES_TARGETS="postgres9_5" PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python3_4" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 python3_4" RUBY_TARGETS="ruby22" USERLAND="GNU" VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia" XTABLES_ADDONS="quota2 psd pknock lscan length2 ipv4options ipset ipp2p iface geoip fuzzy condition tee tarpit sysrq steal rawnat logmark ipmark dhcpmac delude chaos account"

As for the why well...I still don't really know. 99% of that is part of my desktop profile, I would imagine.

My make.conf has grown thusly:
USE="X pulseaudio alsa bluetooth steamruntime"

Again: sticking to a hands-free approach as much as possible. It has been an effective strategy as my machines work well, are faster than ever before, and incredibly stable now, compared to Ubuntu and Winderps :D

Some people show emerge --info while others show their make.conf USE. The latter is completely useless without knowledge about the profile; profiles make a lot of USE decisions for you which is reflected in the emerge --info output.
