Maybe this is a bad idea,... but is there a way to configure portage to use ~x86 for certain packages always? I am especially concerned with the scientific python things, like numpy, scipy, matplotlib. Also I use mod_python, and I have to use an overlay for that.

Thanks!

Yes it is.

create the following file.

Code:
/etc/portage/package.keywords


edit and put your preferences.

Code:
x11-themes/gentoo-xcursors ~amd64


for example.

If you are using Portage 2.1 (which you should be using, since it has gone stable for about a week now), you can also take advantage of a new feature that allows you to have a /etc/portage/package.keywords directory, allowing almost unlimited customization.
This new feature (which also works for /etc/portage/package.{un}mask) sort of concatenates all the files below that directory and treats the result as a single /etc/portage/package.keywords file. This way, you can organize your keyworded packages in the way that suits you best.

Cheers,
Your friendly neighbourhood (tom)cat.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads.

See GF5: What are masked packages?
