Thanks Albert. It worked and the problem is gone.
In a related way I've never stopped to look at /usr in the process of
doing an install. I have an old Mac Mini that I've been trying to get
Gentoo running on recently so in the middle of my install this morning
I stopped after untarring the stage-3 tarball and before untarring the
portage snapshot and found that /usr/portage doesn't exist at that
Does this suggest that I'm actually free at any time to rm -r
/usr/portage and just untar the current snapshot? Other than distfiles
and the overhead of downloading all that stuff again is there anything
in /usr/portage that once erased would damage the machine?
I can always get most of distfile from other machines around here so
it's really a question as to whether portage and emerge build anything
in /usr/portage that cannot be recreated without much trouble.
