The truth is rarely pure and never simple

libertine using local texmf

Under gentoo, the libertine font package may be installed using the sunrise overlay. If you prefer updating your local texmf by hand, you may obtain errors like these when executing the commands in missfont.log:

$ mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 0+480/600 --dpi 480 LinLibertineT-tlf-sc-t1--base
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for LinLibertineT-tlf-sc-t1--base.
mktexpk: perhaps LinLibertineT-tlf-sc-t1--base is missing from the map file.

What you should do then is checking for a disabled map file. If updmap gives this result,

$ updmap --listmaps | grep libertine
#! Map

then the map file has to be enabled.

$ updmap --enable Map

With a result like this, everything should work fine.

$ updmap --listmaps | grep libertine
