What is the make.conf file? What is its purpose?

Make.conf is Portage's main configuration file. It contains many variables that define how a package will installed in a Funtoo system. The really cool thing about portage is that you can customize how it installs packages, what packages it installs, how it builds those packages, etc. This page will attempt to explain the uses of the make.conf file, different variables that can be added to it, and their uses.

Where does this file reside?
