Hi, it would be very convenient to have a flag to automatically clean up /var/tmp/paludis directly after failed builds. I am using a 5GB tmpfs as /var/tmp/paludis to speed up my compiling and to not stress my SSD too much with failed builds. If I am installing several packages, it sometimes happens that some of them fail to build while the rest of them continues just fine. In this case the failed builds will fill up my tmpfs to the point where the continuing builds run out of disk space. This could be prevented with this flag.

Hrm. But then how do you find out what went wrong for the failed packages?

I think the majority of Gentoo users never even look at the broken build, they just wait a few days and sync and try again. That's why I would make this flag optional, so you can explicitly say that you don't care about the broken build.
