Do they warn about it? There are other circumstances where files are
deliberately not removed. I just updated my netbook after 6 weeks, and
the media-libs/jpeg-8 ebuild put this in my /var/log/portage/elog (note;
configuration in /etc/make.conf required)
Old versions of installed libraries were detected on your system.
In order to avoid breaking packages that depend on these old libs,
the libraries are not being removed. You need to run revdep-rebuild
in order to remove these old dependencies. If you do not have this
helper program, simply emerge the 'gentoolkit' package.
# revdep-rebuild --library libjpeg.so.7
Once you've finished running revdep-rebuild, it should be safe to
delete the old libraries. Here is a copy & paste for the lazy:
# rm '/usr/lib/libjpeg.so.7'
