Cool. Will add my ~x86 and emerge the new version. I love the stable
versions. I had a similar case with wireshark, until someone said that
the latest version is actually stable.

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