OK. I just got home and took a look. That is
definitely the 
problem. The Makefile in the themes subdirectory tries
to run strip 
on the themes directory when doing an install. The
strip fails and 
the install bombs at that point. None of the following
commands are executed. Just edit the Makefile, remove
the strip 
commands from the list of commands for the install
target and 
then do the make install again.

I assume a change is needed in themes.pro to prevent
the strip 
commands from making it into the Makefile. I don't
know why 
this isn't a problem with distros other than gentoo.
Since the 
Makefile does not indicate that errors with the strip
should be ignored I think make is doing the correct
thing by 
bombing out.

Thanks for the pointers.
