I managed to overcome with "emerge --update kdepim"

Seems like it wants to install every single package again.

emerge debug: executing sqlcmd 'SELECT * FROM packageList WHERE
category=? AND prefix=? AND version=? AND packageName=?;' with
parameters: ('kde-4.5', '', '20080202', 'kdepim')

I have prefix = NULL in the sqlite database. Perhaps You need to do
prefix IS NULL instead of prefix = ''
