currently virtuals suck...

If a virtual, lets say virtual/editor, is already satisfied, lets say with app-editors/nano then setting up a choice in /etc/portage/profile/virtuals is useless untill you emerge -C app-editors/nano

The problem this causes is when trying to do ROOT=/mnt/pernt emerge virtual/editor if my system has satisfied the virtual then even though I specify what virtual I want emerged I get the one already provided for ROOT="/" instead.

This is a major pain in the rear when it comes to virtual/libc...
