Why does emerge suddenly want to rebuild all your packages?

Because the default Portage behavior has changed.

Old: $ emerge world
New: $ emerge -u world

New Portage thinks that a simple “emerge world” means you want to reinstall everything.

Shame on you for not zealously reading and memorizing everything that Portage has to tell you. Bad Admin. Bad.
