That doesn't doesn't seem to be a recognized version.

From the `emerge binutils` that failed, it gives this version:

 Emerging (1 of 1) sys-devel/binutils-2.21.51.0.6

I see the following related to binutils in $EPREFIX/usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils

$ ls usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils
binutils-2.18-r04.1.ebuild    binutils-2.21.51.0.6.ebuild  Manifest
binutils-2.19.1-r01.1.ebuild  ChangeLog                    metadata.xml
binutils-2.20.1-r1.ebuild     files

(question: what determines which versions I have at my disposal?)

I tried the older one binutils-2.20.1-r1 using the ~ syntax you showed me :-)

$ emerge --oneshot --nodeps ~binutils-2.20.1-r1

And that one worked.

thanks! Onward...
Ricky
