Is it possible to do more than one emerge at one time? If so is it bad practice though?

I think it's a bad practice and am strongly against it, since if two concurrent emerges run the installation or config stage at the same time and those packages are interdependent, weird linking problems will happen IMO. Also portage database race conditions may occur.

Unless your mind has portage awareness (yes, magic powers :P ) and you can create the depgraphs for both packages and be sure that they have no common code at all counting all the dependencies that is not already installed, then you should not do that.

In other words, you can emerge as much packages as you want at the same time. But weird things can happen. That link has more info on the issue. Usually, though, the problem is not too big, since it can be easily solved with a revdep-rebuild at most. But you will get mad if by compiling any other package you screw the already running compilation process of openoffice that has been running for about 7 hours :P
