Sorry - that was unclear. Portage had installed new kernel sources, and
I hadn't built a kernel from them. I initially thought that I could use
the existing kernel, but the vmware-config script would hang.
I use GCC 3.4.6-r1, make 3.80, perl 5.8.8.
I found problems with the dynamic linker in binutils-2.16.1-r4 (I
believe released recently) - it prevented wget and libpcre from
building, and probably screwed up other stuff too. masking this version
