Removing this file broke some dev-util/pkgconfig dependencies - at least for x11-libs/cairo and all packages dependent on it, like x11-libs/gtk .This result in broken detection of installed GTK version while compiling any other packages - their ./configure scripts try to run pkgconfig but got this error instead of GTK version number: # pkg-config --modversion gtk -2.0 Package libpng12 was not found in the pkg-config search path.Precompiled binaries are available for some larger packages or those with no available source code.Gentoo Linux is named after the fast-swimming gentoo penguin.Now, you are installing PHP and you want to have support for graphical operations (image conversion, CAPTCHA generation, etc). All of these things make it a pleasure to use Gentoo.(use --oneshot for things you don't want to add in to the world file, like system libs for example).While most of the servers I deal with these days run Free BSD (Wire Load’s servers included), I was curious about what speed I could get out of old hardware with Gentoo. There are things I really like about Gentoo: the package management, USE flags and the sophisticated dependencies system.
