        insinto ${TEXMF}/tex/xmltex/base
        doins *.{xmt,cfg,xml,tex}


This means that 4 regular files were previously installed in:
/var/lib/texmf/web2c/pdftex
And are now installed in:
/var/lib/texmf/texmf-var/web2c/pdftex

Many other packages install /var/lib/texmf/web2c directory, but it seems that no other package installs /var/lib/texmf/texmf-var directory, so above change in ebuild is probably mistake.
