I don't understand "Don't point..."; is this a patch?  How does your comment resolve this bug?
Comment 3 David Abbott gentoo-dev 2009-12-23 21:07:42 UTC
The source files for shoutcast-trans-bin are not in the repository and have to be downloaded and placed into /usr/portage/distfiles.
# wget 
# mv sc_trans_posix_040.tgz /usr/portage/distfiles 
# emerge shoutcast-trans-bin

Comment 4 John L. Poole 2009-12-23 21:39:17 UTC
That worked.
So, the problem was the URL: 
valid: http://yp.shout...
invalid: http://www.shout...

Thank you.

The message is now,

* Download sc_trans_posix_040.tgz from
