No.  See, the deal with gentoo is you don't run the typical .configure 
and make commands to build your packages.  Rather you use 'emerge,' 
which is a command to build packages in gentoo linux.

something like BSD ports and debian packages.  You sync up with the 
mothership tree to stay current.  Normally one would handle .configre 
[options] with a setting in a variable called $USE, but I'm not able to 
find it in this case.
