you were actually accidentially having /usr/bin/strfile, I don't so the package even dies earlier.  Will look into it.
Comment 3 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2009-06-12 07:00:07 UTC
@robbat2: using install -m0644 -d to create a directory (INSTALL_DIR) doesn't really work as expected everywhere ;)  0755 works better.

prefix ebuild fixed now, leaving for robbat2 to decide whether to fix the Makefile

Prefix prefers not to be involved with games.
