There was some kind of funny stuff with the Gentoo afternoon update, I had a weird message about downgrading libreoffice for no good reason.  Happens.  Good to say "oh, well, I'll update tomorrow" when you see stuff like that.  Maybe there's something else to the xfce stuff, I just don't know, but considering the other funnyness I'd wait and see.  I re-synced later and the libreoffice downgrade was gone, although the xfce stuff you mention is still missing.

Also, as a BTW, I used to have a lot of trouble with eix-sync, lunched my Portdir 2 or 3 times, so I quit using it.  In Funtoo, when I was using Gentoo it was no problem.  Just FYI, in case you have trouble.  Could have just been something here locally.  Now I emerge --sync && eix-update, same thing, a little more typing.

Odd, it does seem to be an eix problem. I deleted its database and updated again, yet still
