Ash, if you do not have the emerge command, you are not running Gentoo - 
what distribution do you use ?
Emerge is a gentoo specific system for getting, and installing packages 
from source.

On the daapd site, I found this link which might help.


You should still be able to follow the gentoo howto - just skip the 
first section:

# mkdir /etc/portage
# echo "media-sound/daapd ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
# echo "media-sound/daapd howl aac mpeg4" >> /etc/portage/package.use
# emerge -D -v daapd

and in its place, compile and install daapd from source (see: 
http://www.deleet.de/projekte/daap/daapd/) ensuring you compile in 
support for howl, aac and mpeg4 (I think - I'm no gentoo expert)
