configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)

Might be you just need to run env-update.
Search around a bit on the forums. The error you encountered has happened to other people too.
I found this for example: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-381024-highlight-error+unknown+item+faillogenab.html
