Is it just me or is there no midnight commander in sabayon5?

Hi,
maybe (and hopefully) it's just me, but I can't find good old mc anywhere.
Tried the graphical paketmanager gtk-thing (whatever it's called on gnome) - nothing.
tried

Code: Select all

emerge mc
- nothing but:

Code: Select all

Calculating dependencies ... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "mc".
tried

Code: Select all

emerge -s mc 
(something shown - but not midnight commander related)
tried

Code: Select all

emerge -S midnight
- Zero, Null, Nil.

Code: Select all

locate mc|grep bin |sort[/code #well can't live without some sort of sort on a sort of gentoo:) ] 
revealed a lot but no mc (in case it's already installed, while I am not aware of it).

So, mighty non newbie experts:

How to get mc materialized within sabayon? What I am doing wrong?

(please don't tell me about gnome-commander, krusader and all those graphical (slow) stuff. I know them all :) Sabayon runs in XBMC mode here, if I want something, I use ssh - so: stick to the cli please)

Thanks lots of,
Coschuetzer

It's definitely in Entropy:
app-misc/mc-4.7.0_pre2

Don't believe what it says on the right - I am anything but sagely; More oniony!

Thanks all of you for your quick answer! I wasn't checking back the last days 'coze of personal life issues, sotosay.
I'll check your hints tonight. Seems I've got to learn a bit more about equo...
And as I'd knew it, there is mc in sabayon :) (anything else would've been kinda strange)!
Regards,
