I usually only get that sort of error if I manually kill emerge for some reason. Perhaps something happened to make it crash. In any case, have you tried re-emerging ttmkfdir and then removing it? You can specify a particular version by doing something like

Code:
emerge =x11-misc/ttmkfdir-3.0.9-r1


You can also try removing and deleting the ttmkfdir folders that you can find in /var/tmp/portage.

bump...

Still getting this, my poor gentoo is bjoken, everything else compiles just fine but after every emerge I do it wants to unmerge that ttmkfdir so the emerge never really get to finish cleanly.

Any help to work around even would be nice, if there is no solution.

Could be a problem with your package database. Check the files in /var/db/pkg/x11-misc/ttmkfdir-3.0.9-r1/ for problems. Did you try to re-emerge the older version?

Much love in your direction. Removed the contents of that dir, and re-emerged the older package, problem solved.

I had done every possible combination EXCEPT digging in that dir before.

Code:
 x11-misc/ttmkfdir
    selected: 3.0.9-r2
   protected: 3.0.9-r1
     omitted: none

>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal.
>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.

>>> Waiting 5 seconds before starting...
>>> (Control-C to abort)...
>>> Unmerging in: 5 4 3 2 1
>>> Unmerging x11-misc/ttmkfdir-3.0.9-r2...
