Strange:
after an emerge sync, the message "updating portage chache" hangs at about 50% (or it gets terribly slow, I can't really tell). What I find even stranger is that when I ^c this update of the cache, I can just emerge -uvDat world like I am used to, without any problem. So why the hell do I need to update that cache? Also, any way I can get it to unhang?

hi,

i had the same problem, but switching to portage with cdb:

http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_speed_up_portage_with_cdb

solved this problem for me.
i think the new version of portage solved this problem too....portage is very very fast on my machine now.
try to upgrade a newer version or use cdb (link above)
i use Portage 2.0.53_rc7.

I'm not prepared to switch to unstable portage, I'll just wait till that version goes stable, maybe check out that cdb in the meantime.
