    Unusual error when changing users (or logging in)


    OK, the background....
    I decided to add "ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" to my make.conf so that I get the latest packages (and to see if it will resolve some portage issues I'm having). so far so good...out of 292 that needed updating, 270 are done and I've restarted and it's running great....but there's one small (?) problem:

    well, here it from the terminal:
    Code:
    josh@comp ~ $ su
    Password: 
    configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'CHFN_AUTH' (notify administrator)
    comp josh #
    it also does this when the computer first starts...when I login from the command line. it says:
    Code:
    comp login: root
    configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)
    configuration error - unknown item 'CHFN_AUTH' (notify administrator)
    Password:
    comp ~ #
    does anyone know how to fix this? is this a major problem? is it really becasue i updated to the latest (testing?) releases?
