    ==> TYPE I ... done.  ==> CWD /pub/gentoo/distfiles ... done.

    Exception received:
    EmergePackageError :FATAL: emerge: Could not emerge sys-apps/usbutils-0.11-r5!
    Please submit a bug report (after searching to make sure it's not a known issue and verifying you didn't do something stupid) with the contents of /var/log/install.log and /tmp/installprofile.xml and the version of the installer you used

    Grab the file yourself with wget or links, and put it into /usr/portage/distfiles, then try emerging again.
