When I happened to look into '/var/tmp/portage', I found a folder named 'media-libs' and in it another one named 'sdl-terminal-1.1.3-r1'. I suspect these are left over from a failed process? Any reason I cannot simply delete them, or is there a more proper way to clean out this sort of crut from portage?

These are left there in case you want to fix the error and build them afterwards. If this is not your intention just rm.

Thanks, Jaglover. So basically this folder, '/var/tmp/portage', should be empty except when I am actually emerging?
