Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Check your /etc/make.conf file. If you can see "debug" in between your USE flags, remove it or modify it with a minus in front of it so it's "-debug".
Then do "emerge -auDvN world" to synchronize your installation with the change. nano, and probably many others should be shown in the list of package to emerge. If that's the case, answer "yes". If not, then we will need to look into something else.
As nano is next to useless with the debug flag on, first you must build it with debugging off.
USE="-debug" emerge -1 nano
Using USE flags on the command line like this is a VeryBadThing(tm) normally but you don't have a lot of choice.
With nano fixed, you can now hunt down where USE="debug" is set and turn it off. Lastly,
emerge -uDNav world
to fix all the other packages made with debug enabled.
