Well I thought there might be a meta build I could unmask and then start unmasking other ebuilds as it needed them. I really don't want to switch back to ~amd and to emerge -uDN world as that would pull in more than I think i need.
Equo, I removed that awhile ago. I got upset with it after I was doing a world update and went to bed only to find that equo was prompting me for something. I've also found that the binary builds make my computer seem somewhat choppy, where as everything runs smooth just using portage.
So from what you are telling me, there really isn't a clear upgrade path using portage. Sure I could switch back to unstable and emerge world, but even then it still wouldn't be sabayon 4.1 or 4.2?
