The whole process is described in detail in the Gentoo Linux Handbook.
This will make your system seem slow when using it normally, because it's busy doing something else. To prevent this, add nice manual page Setting the nice level to '-19' might make gcc compile slightly faster but will make your box really laggy.

You compile all desired software optimized for your system.
Portage is a true ports (package management) system used by Gentoo Linux in the tradition of BSD ports, but is Python-based and has a number of advanced features including dependencies, fine-grained package management, fake (Open BSD-style) installs, path sand boxing, safe un-merging, system profiles, virtual packages, configuration file management, and more.
This distribution is best suited for experienced users and requires you to be able to hand edit configuration files using a text editor.
You must do the installation by starting your computer from a Live CD (A Linux environment with a collection of needed tools).
