Found a binary
(no 386 there)
only needed 2 files
# ln -s libc-2.3.5.so libc.so.6
now gcc fails with
checking for library containing gettext... configure: error: Link
tests are not allowed after GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES.
make: *** [configure-target-libstdc++-v3] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/gcc-3.4.4-r1/work/build'
make: *** [profiledbootstrap] Error 2
!!! ERROR: sys-devel/gcc-3.4.4-r1 failed.
!!! Function gcc_do_make, Line 1319, Exitcode 2
!!! emake failed with profiledbootstrap
Anyway 23:30 here, probably obvious in the morning.
