on my laptop I have nmap version 4.60 from gentoo portage.
4.62 appears as non stable in portage.


The Gentoo arch/~arch model (as well as most other distributions notion
of stable/unstable) typically doesn't match the Nmap development cycle.

For Nmap it is generally the case that x.z is /more/ stable and better
tested than x.y when z > y.

At least for nmap, you probably should add

# Networking (or ~x86, etc)
net-analyzer/nmap ~amd64

to /etc/portage/package.keywords

I love Gentoo but don't expect the devs and package maintainers to make
the best decisions for your particular usage case.
