installing frostwire - broken symbolic link

"emerge frostwire" worked up to this point:
* Detected file collision(s):
 * 	/usr/share/ant/bin
 * Searching all installed packages for file collisions...
 * Press Ctrl-C to Stop

 * None of the installed packages claim the file(s).
 * Package 'dev-java/ant-core-1.7.1-r4' NOT merged due to file
 * collisions. If necessary, refer to your elog messages for the whole
 * content of the above message.

>>> Failed to install dev-java/ant-core-1.7.1-r4, Log file:

>>>  '/var/lib/entropy/logs/dev-java:ant-core-1.7.1-r4:20091006-212008.log'
I removed the file bin from /usr/share/ant; it was a broken symlink to /usr/share/ant-core. Then it installed fine.

Thanks for sharing the solution. That's the LQ spirit.

A suggestion for the future: If you answer your own question, put the solution in a separate post; this does 2 good things:
  • It generates e-mail to anyone who subscribed to either the thread or the forum.
  • It avoids the creation of oxymoronic 0-reply solved threads.
