Description Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2004-07-25 15:27:17 UTC
after emerge upgrades gdbm to 1.8.3 (previously was on 1.8.0-r5), it leaves behind an empty file /usr/lib/ which causes problems.

I believe this is because it copies ${ROOT}/usr/lib/ into ${D}/usr/lib/ and as ${ROOT}/usr/lib/ is a symlink to, when it is touched it creates the empty ${D}/usr/lib/ Which is then installed onto your system and thus borks everything up.
