8 I recall something similar happening to me a while ago, on a disconnected box
9 that hadn't been updated for 6 months. I was getting weird status symbols just
10 like you after a sync. In my case, an upgrade to the latest ~arch portage
11 fixed it.
13 You seem to be running purely x86 right? I assume as a first step you have
14 done all the sensible things - remerge latest stable portage, emerge --sync,
15 checked /etc/portage/* for silly masks that you forgot about?
