The following message has been forwarded to this bug again. There are
some details removed which will not be useful to anyone but me - I don't
think many people are running Gentoo here so I was told to remove the
output of "emerge --info" as this is only useful to recreate a somewhat
similar system.

To reply to your bug (as I wrote before), just reply to the initial info
message or.. If this doesn't get sorted out use
$ More on this can be found here: which took me long enough
myself. The debbugs team of gnu should really document this more
visible. writes:
