Thank you for your time. I will provide as much information

As you can see I use gcc-3.4.4. This was a test if it would made
any difference. It did also not work with gcc-3.3.x.
Also I rebuilt portage, python etc (with the new glibc) with no
success.

Please ask if you need more infos. I've set up a chroot-env to
for testing purposes.

Thanks

Marc
