Ooos, sorry just was I was formally submitting this weirdness as,
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=229243, I realize the last
part of your email, but it's still not clear why it causes a problem.
If LDFLAGS is set, then why should gcc -m64 have trouble? In fact, it
works OK when the 64-bit gcc library is moved to /usr/sfw/lib.
