Your logs show that gnome-terminal is getting installed correctly. Maybe it's
the documentation viewer that's causing the problems. What version of yelp do
you have installed in your system?

As a side note, the fact that this is not reproducible and you use a
non-supported portage overlay strongly suggest that this might be a local problem.
