If all you're looking for is something to cite, then binary packages run
afoul of most of our existing QA and security guidelines:

  * There are no USE flags to govern optional dependencies.

  * CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, etc. are not respected.

  * Certain compiler features (for example, stack-smashing protection)
    are sidestepped.

  * Dependencies are bundled or statically linked.
