gcc guide recommends running emerge system before emerge world so you have an updated tool chain before building world. I guess the same applies to any toolchain updates ... I wonder if this is automagically done when you emerge -uDN world ...
I don't think I have come across any issues by doing update world alone but for the moment I'm going to do update system then update world (you have them listed the opposite way round ).
... actually I'll do
emerge --sync emerge -avufDN world emerge -avuDN system emerge -avuDN world
emerge -p system > emerge-system emerge -p world > emerge-world diff -w emerge-system emerge-world > emerge-system-world-diff
... I just noticed I typed dumb-a*s in the above and it got updated when I previewed the post ... now all I need is automatic post corrections
Ed: I guess since I never built Gentoo from a stage1 or stage2 tarball I missed most of the fun

here I started using Gentoo after they dropped support for user build from stage1 & stage2 so have not bothered. A stage1 or 2 does not seem to offer a great deal of advantage ... just extra compile time . I'm hoping I don't need to re-install but might have a go at a stage1 in a VM at some point.

Hi Mike - only thing I have noticed is some packages get built with system and the remainder get built with world. I don't expect problems running things this way - I just want to avoid any potential issues by just running world update. I've been running Funtoo the same way and no problems there either.
