Hi,

I reported the same problem to bugzilla...
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100259#c36
(Perhaps it finds more attention here...)

It seems it has to do with the current state of ntpl on
alphas.

If you set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 and therefore force
to use linuxthreads, emerge works again.
But I don't know if it really is nptl's fault. I can manually
compile everything with the same parameters as
portage does. So a portage (sandbox?) fault is also possible.

Marc
