emerging XML-Parser then continueing onto lxde-meta resulted in a succesfull build. Propose XML-Parser checking be added to the lxde-meta dependency list (or lx-menu in paticular)
lxde-base/lxmenu-data has depend on dev-util/intltool, and intltool has runtime depend on XML-Parser... in others words, it's impossible to install the package without having XML-Parser installed as is. I guess you upgraded perl, and forgot to run "perl-cleaner --reallyall" ? Then re-emerging XML-Parser would have fixed this one issue...
thanks, still feeling out gentoo. did log dump and saw it nagging about xml-parser so i emerged it and cured problem. will do that next time.
Probably a dupe of bug 41124 ;)
