I wasn't able to install the binary package properly (as ldconfig is
called during the emerge process). However as I was stracing the
ldconfig output to compare with the working setup I realised I wasn't
logging stderr so hit Ctrl-C and restarted ldconfig.

This seems to of "unstuck" the ldconfig failure and I have been able to
run ldconfig without breaking things since. I've done a proper src
emerge of glibc on a chrooted in my original partiton and everything
seems to be working ok now.

The config has been updated during the env-update so I wonder if it was
a subtle breakage in the config that was causing the failure?

If you had better tools, you could more effectively demonstrate your
total incompetence.
