1 Ran the 'regenworld' and 'revdep-rebuild' and it seems to be working. 6 packages were added to world as a result.
2 It's currently still in the revdep-rebuild phase, and I think it should complete without problem; I'll continue on as suggested later this evening if it does. (Hopefully!)
4 I'll post more if I run into other issues, but I think we likely solved it. If it's finished with revdep-rebuild when I get back home this evening, then it should be completely solved since before I couldn't get through such a build without something breaking.
6 Thanks all!

18 Yes, I did an emerge sync against my local portage mirror which is updated every day, used by my other systems.
20 I did it very early in the install process too; though I forget at exactly what step. I also did it a couple times thereafter after hitting the issue to see if it would correct it, but no luck.

53 you can also use equery check to check all files which should be
54 installed. Did you do an emerge --sync to corrected any portage brackage?
