My bad, I assumed the OP ran paludis -i --dl-blocks discard e2fsprogs
already, since he said he did what was said in the post.

As for com_err breaking wget:

wget depends on openssl if you have the ssl useflag, and if you have
kerberos useflag for openssl, it pulls in mit-krb5.

mit-krb5-1.6.3-r3 and earlier ones depend on
>sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.40.11, sys-libs/com_err and sys-libs/ss,
and will indeed break if you uninstall com_err and ss


There are 3 kinds of people in the world: those who can count, and
those who can't.
