That is just a *really* bad maintainer. Or a *really* bad bugreport. Or
something that showed you already had a *really* screwed up system.
What is the bug number?
Did you post your emerge --info and a *full* build.log?
Also information about what makeopts works and not gives nothing, that
just becomes noise. Becouse what makeopts works and not depends most of
the time on a race condition in the makefiles and can because of that
also depend on stuff like your current system load.
