790<c>eclean</c> is a tool to remove old source files and old binary packages from
791your system.
792</p>
793
794<p>
795When you build and install packages, the source files are downloaded and
796preserved in DISTDIR, usually <path>/usr/portage/distfiles</path>. This can
797accumulate several gigs of material over time if you don't clean it
798periodically. You can run <c>eclean-dist</c> to clean only source files from
799DISTDIR.
800</p>
801
802<p>
803You can create archives of installed packages by using <c>quickpg</c> or
804FEATURES="buildpkg". These archived packages are kept in PKGDIR, usually
805<path>/usr/portage/packages</path>. When you no longer need to keep them around,
806or if they're too old, you can run <c>eclean-pkg</c> to remove them from PKGDIR.
807It's a good way to ensure that any binary packages you have are only the latest
808versions.

813system, please read <c>man eclean</c>.
