I should maybe point out that gentoo Linux is a source-based
distribution so that nearly every package installation is built from
source before it's installed.  Various build parameters can be
controlled by setting environment variables at build time in gentoo, but
in the absence of a complete configure/make/make install build cycle (as
in installing a pre-compiled package), setting environment variables is
generally only effective at run-time.
