Description pat 2008-04-14 19:52:28 UTC
An 'emerge --noreplace git' makes portage crash because 'git' is ambiguous:
'app-misc/git', 'dev-util/git'

Shows a traceback instead of a nice error message. Note the --noreplace option.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
$ sudo emerge --noreplace -a git

Actual Results:
