8 Yes. If you think these files might be important, then you could back them
9 up first. Apparently they belong to the icu stuff you are going to remerge
10 anyway, so deleting should be safe I think. But it's strange that those
11 files do not belong to any package.
13 Instead of removing them it would be easier to set FEATURES to -collision-
14 protect. And with FEATURES=keepwork you will not have to recompile icu. So,
15 I would do this:
17 FEATURES="-collision-protect keepwork" emerge -1a dev-libs/icu
19 Remember that you have to delete stuff in /var/tmp/portage/dev-
20 libs/icu-4.6.1 manually afterwards.
