I just recently emerged the latest portage version. In an attempt to see if Bittorrent 4.0 was in portage, I came upon this bug.

It doesn't matter what version you specify. I put 10 to show that the ebuild definitely does not exist.

Code:

root@med michael $ emerge -pv bittorrent-10.0

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies

!!! Problem in net-p2p/bittorrent-10.0 dependencies.
!!! "Specific key requires an operator (net-p2p/bittorrent-10.0) (try adding an'=')" exceptions


Shouldn't the error message say that the ebuild does not exist?

This bug may have been reported in Gentoo's Bugzilla but I have no idea what to search for.

It's not a bug. Your syntax is incorrect, and emerge is telling you just that.
If you want specific version, you need to specify an operator (=, <, >, ...)
You could try:
Code:
emerge -pv '>=net-p2p/bittorrent-<whatever>'
