When I execute "emerge --search jack" I get these errors:

Searching... \ * ERROR: media-sound/qjackctl-0.2.23 failed:
* qt3.eclass could not be found by inherit()
*
* Call stack:
* ebuild.sh, line 1983: Called source '/usr/local/portage/layman/pro-audio/media-sound/qjackctl/qjackctl-0.2.23.ebuild'
* qjackctl-0.2.23.ebuild, line 5: Called inherit 'eutils' 'qt3'
* ebuild.sh, line 1364: Called die
* The specific snippet of code:
* [ ! -e "$location" ] && die "${1}.eclass could not be found by inherit()"
*
* If you need support, post the output of 'emerge --info =media-sound/qjackctl-0.2.23',
* the complete build log and the output of 'emerge -pqv =media-sound/qjackctl-0.2.23'.
* This ebuild is from an overlay: '/usr/local/portage/layman/pro-audio/'
* S: '/var/tmp/portage/media-sound/qjackctl-0.2.23/work/qjackctl-0.2.23'

I have portage set to search the proaudio layover as well as the normal portage tree. Today is the first time this has happened, and I am very confused as to why this error appears, since I am not even trying to install qjackctl!

Any insight on why this is happening and how I can fix it is greatly appreciated.

That eclass has recently been removed from the main tree. You could put the eclass into an overlay, but the best solution is probably to update to a QJackCtl that does not require Qt3, and then remove the ebuild for the old Qt3 one.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Unsupported Software, problems arising from overlay ebuilds are not officially supported.
