Thanks for your pointers.
I did emerge -e system then emerge -e world. As there were some pending
upgrades this wasn't as easy as it'd be in an up-to-date systems --
and I decided it was a good idea to sync the tree, anyway (just to make
sure it was sane).
But now, after several complete remerges, it's all freshly compiled. If
something is broken and didn't show up yet, that must mean pigs can fly.
