Picking random post to reply to so anyone can respond to this question.
I recall years ago there was talk of moving distfiles and such to a
directory in /var on new installs at least. At the time, I moved mine
to /var/cache/portage. I seem to recall that another location ended up
being picked. Does anyone recall if the move ever did occur and if so,
where it went? I recall reading about it but can't recall what was
final on it or if it ended up being moved at all.
Thanks to whoever has elephant memory. lol
