USE flags

  • acl - Add support for Access Control Lists
  • caps - Add Linux capabilities support in output of file utilities (ls, dir, ...) via sys-libs/libcap
  • gmp - Add support for dev-libs/gmp (GNU MP library)
  • hostname - Build the hostname program
  • kill - Build the kill program
  • multicall - Build all tools into a single `coreutils` program akin to busybox to save space
  • nls - Add Native Language Support (using gettext - GNU locale utilities)
  • selinux - !!internal use only!! Security Enhanced Linux support, this must be set by the selinux profile or breakage will occur
  • split-usr - Enable this if /bin and /usr/bin are separate directories
  • static - !!do not set this during bootstrap!! Causes binaries to be statically linked instead of dynamically
  • test - Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)
  • unicode - Add support for Unicode
  • userland_BSD - USERLAND setting for systems using BSDish userland (FreeBSD OpenBSD NetBSD DragonFly)
  • vanilla - Do not add extra patches which change default behaviour; DO NOT USE THIS ON A GLOBAL SCALE as the severity of the meaning changes drastically
  • xattr - Add support for extended attributes (filesystem-stored metadata)
