Hi.

What does the /var/db/pkg directory hold?
I used butter fingers and beer to `rm -rf` it.
I was sorta in the middle of an `emerge -uDN world` when I did it.

Now portage is giving me:

Code:

gentoo ~ # emerge portage
Calculating dependencies... done!
!!! Error: circular dependencies:

Anyone know the best way to go about fixing this?
I've searched high and low trying to find something to read about this but haven't found anything pertinent.
