emerge --update --pretend world

These are the packages that I would merge, in order.

Ok... After I figured out why mine failed...
Try this:

ls -l /usr/sbin/

If that is NOT a symlink to /usr/lib/portage/bin/, then THAT is your 

ln -sf /usr/lib/portage/bin/ /usr/sbin/
Comment 2 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-06-27 10:32:50 UTC
The sablotron-0.60 ebuild has a long-standing syntax error in it which is
causing this problem.  Portage 2.0.7 has an exception handler to catch and give
a friendly explanation of this problem.  I have also tasked seemant with finding
people to fix problems like this.
