I did actually. After writing that message, I started a build of my
prefix [1]. Admittedly, this is not the full gentoo-prefix, since it
uses the tool chain on the host, which runs gentoo itself:

burcin@... .../burcin/prefix-20111115 $ gcc --version
gcc (Gentoo 4.5.3-r1 p1.0, pie-0.4.5) 4.5.3


[1] https://bitbucket.org/burcin/sage-prefix

I needed to add the profile for ia64. After that, initial bootstrap
went fine (build portage & baselayout-prefix). Then 148 of the 150
packages required for emerging Sage built successfully. Part of the log
is at the end of this message.

The problem in the 149th package is caused by --autounmask picking a
newer version of fplll than the one Sage supports. I will try to emerge
the right version and continue with the build. Running the Sage test
suite should exercise most of these packages that are installed.

That's fine by me. I can set the necessary keywords with a
package.keywords file in the profile directory.


Cheers,
Burcin
