An attempt to upgrade my KDE to fresh 4.8.2 was unexpectedly failed with strange error at unpack stage:

Failed install to / for kde-base/kdelibs-4.8.2:4::gentoo replacing 4.8.2:4::installed

To fix that u have to fix paludis script to unpack sources in /usr/libexec/paludis/utils/unpack and function unpack_tar.xz(). !

Upd: That was a “long” time ago :) Nowadays everything is Ok (paludis 0.78.1 and KDE 4.9).
