More reason for me to stay away from udev as if it's the plague ;-)


Seriously, it's too complex for its own good.

Why? Because it includes documentation? Errors like this are down to
either the package or the package manager, not the software they are
trying to install.

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=409359 confirms that this is down
to the ebuild breaking the rules.
