Description dawgg 2016-09-29 08:19:30 UTC
on a ~x86-system with net-analyzer/munin already installed the ebuild for net-analyzer/munin-2.0.19-r2 tries to re-create the group "munin-async" and fails because this group already exists from the previous installation.

i do not use munin-async so the solution was to
groupdel munin-async
and re-emerge the package
