What gives??? Every bit of documentation states that hciconfig and hciattach are commands included with bluez (and/or bluez-tools), yet I have both of them installed and no hciconfig or hciattach commands.

Without at least hciattach, I cannot attach a UART to the BT module, hence the BT will never work.

Can someone please explain what is going on with this package and why every document I've read on the bluez stuff is wrong on this?

What version and USE flags are you using for net-wireless/bluez?
hciattach for net-wireless/bluez-5.43-r1 shows up in /usr/bin ...

Enable deprecated use flag of bluez package (for version >=5.46)

EDIT: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/bluetooth/bluez.git/commit/?id=b1eb2c4cd057624312e0412f6c4be000f7fc3617
