I've done several emerge syncs and the problem has persisited. Neither
dia nor gimp-print appear anywhere in my local portage overlay, and both
of these packages are giving me issues. If I mask gimp-print I'm sure
I'll hit more.
Neither of these ebuilds has the text "glibc" anywhere in them. The
string "virtual/glibc" doesn't appear in any code in the ebuild classes
director either under /usr/portage.
