Gentoo uses a file named use.desc which contains every global use
flag (Portage's variant equivalent)
with its description.
Additionally, there is a use.local.desc which contains the various
specific packages' use flags.
This is a great feature as I believe you are frequently asked what is
the purpose of this or that variant.
