bit of a fright this morning:

portage crapped out with a missing profile error.

I see that the KDE desktop profile has disappeared.

I missed the notice; or is that correct that it has gone
and only plasma profile remains?

KDE Plasma 4 removal is on the news-items web page, but it didn't and doesn't show up in 'eselect news list' for me.
My make.profile points to /usr/portage/profiles/default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/kde which no longer exists.
I had switched from kdm to sddm ten months ago.
