    maybe:
    emerge world --emptytree

    it'll emerge everything, iirc, it'll re-emerge everything, (reading note@self, "don't use emerge world --emptytree when you want to resume a \"emerge world\" - it starts all over" -- guess --emptytree does what you want )

    whats the primary difference between that and
    emerge world --emptytree
    i started both to see what would come of it, emerge world turned up 6 that would need to be merged and emptytree gave me some 265. im just migrating desktops from kde to gnome so it seems lkely (especialy b/c i removed kde already) that emerge world is everyhitng that is changing.

    emerge -e world == emerge world with an empty dep tree. basically, portage thinks that *nothing* is installed on your system and rebuilds it all.

    emerge world || emerge -u world == portage doesn't act as if the dep tree is empty and only re-emerges what is in the world file.
