A word of advice: if you are trying to reinstall an older system, don't
copy over all the use flags at the beginning and then try to build the
whole system at once. It creates a lot of problems (cyclic dependencies,
compile problems). It used to work some time ago, but when I tried to
reinstall my old computer from scratch for my parents a month ago, I
just had to take it nice and slow.... (to gentoo-devs: sorry, I had no
time to go through it and post bugs...)

Instead emerge the basic system first with the standard use flags, then
add new and recompile
