I looked at the Gentoo site for a minute.  It uses some gadget called 
Portage for installing packages.  But I can't find anything about rpm. 
I must have something that is happy with rpm, if for no other reason 
than that there are 10 gazillion applications out there that have rpm's. 
  What do you think:  does Portage know rpm?
