A quote:

  In the case of emake, the common || die "something went wrong" idiom is used — 
  this is to ensure that if for some reason an error occurs, Portage will stop 
  rather than trying to continue with the install. Note that econf does not need 
  the || die idiom, as it dies by itself if something failed.

I don't think we need "|| die" with emake anymore?

This appears to have been fixed by someone somewhere. Thank you, Mr. Someone.

Also, mjo, thank you very much for filing this bug. :)
