What package?
There are certain packages that are horrible...
I've always had swap, even for VMs...

Until you're setting up systems with obscene amounts of RAM, you should always set up a swap partition.

That surprises me a bit, since I've often built Gentoo on 512M systems without
noticeable use of swap - OTOH, I haven't tried in the last year or so. Certainly
I had a swap partition, but I can't recall more than a few MB ever being used.
