USE flags

  • abi_mips_n32 - 64-bit (32-bit pointer) libraries
  • abi_mips_n64 - 64-bit libraries
  • abi_mips_o32 - 32-bit libraries
  • abi_ppc_32 - 32-bit (ppc) libraries
  • abi_ppc_64 - 64-bit (ppc64) libraries
  • abi_riscv_lp64 - 64-bit (rv64) soft-float libraries
  • abi_riscv_lp64d - 64-bit (rv64) double hard-float libraries
  • abi_s390_32 - 32-bit (s390) libraries
  • abi_s390_64 - 64-bit (s390x) libraries
  • abi_x86_32 - 32-bit (x86) libraries
  • abi_x86_64 - 64-bit (amd64) libraries
  • abi_x86_x32 - x32 ABI libraries
  • acl - Add support for Access Control Lists
  • bzip2 - Allow accessing bzip2-compressed archives through libbz2 (which comes with app-arch/bzip2). This only affects libarchive's native support: bsdtar will keep using bunzip2 as a filter if that's not built-in.
  • e2fsprogs - Use file flags from sys-fs/e2fsprogs headers instead of virtual/os-headers headers
  • expat - Enable the use of dev-libs/expat for XML parsing
  • iconv - Enable support for the iconv character set conversion library
  • kernel_linux - KERNEL setting for system using the Linux kernel
  • libressl - Use dev-libs/libressl instead of dev-libs/openssl when applicable (see also the ssl useflag)
  • lz4 - Enable support for LZ4 compression using app-arch/lz4
  • lzma - Support for LZMA (de)compression algorithm
  • lzo - Enable support for lzo compression
  • nettle - Use dev-libs/nettle as crypto backend
  • static-libs - Build static versions of dynamic libraries as well
  • threads - Add threads support for various packages. Usually pthreads
  • xattr - Add support for extended attributes (filesystem-stored metadata)
  • zlib - Allow accessing gzip-compressed archives through sys-libs/zlib. This only affects libarchive's native support: bsdtar will keep using gunzip as a filter if that's not built-in. It's also needed for supporting extraction of ZIP files.
  • zstd - Enable support for ZSTD compression
