Well, firstly I'd be pretty pissed off if some upgrade trod all over my 
directory permissions. Secondly, I even chmodded the entire /var/www tree 
777 in an effort to get it to work... 403 every single time.

There's an upgrade to apache2 just landed in portage, I'll see if that does 
anything. If not, it looks like I'm going to have to reinstall from scratch 
in order to stand a chance of maybe getting apache working again.

And yeah, I've been using the package files in /etc/portage for quite a 
while now.

Do any of the other gentoo users out there have the vhosts USE flag set for 
apache, or globally?

I've also just found out that X refuses to work (blank screen, won't even 
crash back to bash) when I use the 6111 nVidia drivers to try and get 
around Myth segfaulting whenever TV stops playing. And I've got a cold. : 
sniff : I am not a happy bunny...
