You need to upgrade to >=dev-lang/python-2.4.4-r4. Just do it first or emerge this w/ collision-protect disabled or whatever. We could stick some blocker there but I'd say it plain isn't worth the PITA.

We can't solve this problem with the older python ebuilds unfortunately. With the new versions python-updater is split out in it's own ebuild, partly to avoid file collisions.

It's been suggested that disabling collision-protect in make.conf is a bad idea.  As an alternative you might try adding "sys-devel/python ~[your arch]" to /etc/portage/package.keyword.  This seems to have worked for me.
