iwconfig: command not found

I cant get the iwconfig command to work.
I use gentoo, and i tried to emerge the "linux-wlan-ng" cause i thought the command was in the package.

I dont know how to get the iwconfig command to work.

On Mandrake, SuSE and Fedora, iwconfig and others are located in the 'wireless-tools' package.
