I'm on Panther...did an emerge sync...said I needed to update portage...I tired that, and got a bunch of errors saying file 'x' was installed under group portage....and then borks.
Any ideas? Here's the last of what it spit out at me...

Any ideas? It seems to not want to overwrite what gentoo itself has put on there?
