Hope you don't mind; I'm moving this to the gentoo-alpha list.

Right, it looks like we need an update to the xfree loader to fix this.

The problem here is that you're using a newer version of gcc than
expected.  (Not that this is your fault; it's probably a problem in or in KEYWORDS).  The versions of glibc in the portage
tree have some bad assembly which compiles with the older gcc but not
wiht the newer gcc.

Originally I "fixed" this problem by demoting the stable version of
glibc on alpha.  This was a bad idea, though, because it broke lots of
existing installations when glibc downgraded.

The alternative fix was to restrict the version of gcc.  This is a safer
fix.  In reality we're just waiting for the most recent glibc fixes to
hit the portage tree since they solve the assembly problems.

What version of gcc do you have installed?  qpkg -I -v gcc
