Please help me with this message. I've search but remain unsure of what to do.

 * IMPORTANT: 3 config files in '/etc' need updating.
 * Type emerge --help config to learn how to update config files.
localhost carlton # emerge --help config
*** Deprecated use of action 'config', use '--config' instead

You need to read the WIKI
Look for dispatch-conf or etc-update

It looks like they broke "emerge --help config" in v2.1.3.3. It worked in v2.1.2.9.

I liked Sabayon until it switched to Rigo and becoming the gentoo equivalent of Ubuntu. Extreme browsing? Extreme gaming? Extreme work? Extreme development? Like, totally gnarly, dude!
