emerge --info follows:

jc@bopper:/gentoo$


Also: I verified that /var/lib/sddm does not exist.
Code:

[root@bopper:/gentoo# cd var/lib/sddm
bash: cd: var/lib/sddm: No such file or directory
root@bopper:/gentoo# ls var
cache  empty  lock              lock.backup.0001  mail  spool  tmp
db     lib    lock.backup.0000  log               run   svc.d  www
root@bopper:/gentoo# ls var/lib
gentoo  misc  module-rebuild  NetworkManager  portage  syslog-ng  xdm  xkb
root@bopper:/gentoo#


I rebuilt sddm at least twice. Any ideas why it's not present?
