Hmm.  OK, this should work - I guess the thing to do is check that the
latest monthly release builds using this section on an up to date
gentoo install before bumping the ebuild version number.

That's probably it.  This will most likely be a problem, because AFAIK
there isn't any way to insist that emerge has access to an X server. 
(In fact, in many situations it definitely won't.)  Is there a toggle
that could be set to build the graphics, but not run the live test?

For the moment I did a xhost +localhost to (hopefully) allow things to
proceed - I'll let you know if it makes it the rest of the way. 
Impressive stuff Tim - I'm really looking forward to trying out
graphics :-).  Thanks for all your hard worK!
