Subject: emerge + libraries

Yesterday I had a situation that required me to run revdep-rebuild, and
after a number of runs + some manual emerges I got:

thor:/home/tres # rm /root/.revdep-rebuild*.?_* ; revdep-rebuild
rm: cannot remove `/root/.revdep-rebuild*.?_*': No such file or

The original problem happened when Evolution couldn't find because it got nuked somewhere.  I emerged the package
that provides it (sys-libs/com_err) and then ran revdep-rebuild + a
couple of manual emerges (ehtereal + DirectFB) and a re-run of
revdep-rebuild and I got the exact same thing as listed above.
revdep-rebuild is noticing two things with broken linking but doing
nothing to rectify the situation.  I re-emerged kdelibs and then re-ran
revdep-rebuild but got the same messages.

Any ideas on what to try now?
