    are you building the portage tree for the initial install or are you just trying to update the portage tree?

    if it's the former, then, yes, it can take a while..

    if the latter, i've noticed that some of the servers in the rsync rotation are a bit slower than others.. i usually just ^C out of the sync and restart it to get a different server.. but it can take a few mins to update the tree.... it really depends upon the length of time between syncs.

    Gentoo is great once you get your CFLAGS and USE flags how you want them.. be sure to check make.globals for USE flags that you don't want.. put a corresponding -<flag> in your make.conf to turn them off.. you should *never* edit make.globals
