I'm sorry to be such a whiner, but doesn't the search function on the forums absolutely s u c k?
If I'm not complete worthless in choosing keywords, then someone else surely must have noticed the same?

I found this bug: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133468
which sounds promising but is almost 3 years old...

I'd be willing to put in some time in helping out if I can.
A better search function would benefit everyone.

Anyone better informed than me?

Yes. There's no hidden feature not anything like that. It is really as bad as it seems.

I am moving this to duplicates because it's a recurring topic that arises from time to time, you might be interested in these threads:

You might find something interesting in the Gentoo Forum Feedback subforum as well.
