I totally agree.. Love them live CD's.. Just that the benefits derived from 
Gentoo was a distro compiled for your specific platform.  A binary distro of 
gentoo seemed to defeat that purpose.

Compiling everything on boot would be painful... maybe a Gentoo live for 686, 
etc. dunno.  Knoppix 5.0 (dvd) is a fuller distro as far as live distro's go.
Seemed to boot easier as well.. I had to run 'fixme' to get X to work with 
this one.
