Seems I found the reason. Wanted to test btrfs [1] and chose all Gentoo 
related directories for the test ($PORTDIR, $DISTDIR and $PORTAGE_TMPDIR 
were put on a btrfs volume). Remounting the old, xfs based volumes brought 
paludis back to normal behaviour. However, the question remains: Why does a 
change in the underlying fs affect paludis at all (and not 
portage/emerge) ?

The behaviour is reproducible:

I have:

All three are logical volumes, mounted as follows:

# mount|grep gentoo
/dev/evms/build on /gentoo/build type xfs (rw)
/dev/evms/overlays on /gentoo/overlays type xfs (rw)
/dev/evms/distfiles on /gentoo/distfiles type xfs (rw)

With this setup, paludis works fine. Mounting the btrfs volumes again, like

# mount|grep gentoo
/dev/evms/gentoo on /gentoo/distfiles type btrfs (rw,subvol=distfiles)
/dev/evms/gentoo on /gentoo/build type btrfs (rw,subvol=build)
/dev/evms/gentoo on /gentoo/overlays type btrfs (rw,subvol=overlays)

does again make paludis install things with wrong permisions.
