Now that's interesting. I built the system using binutils-2.16.90.0.3 (~mips at the time), then downgraded to 2.16.1 to solve bug #112809. Now, Emacs won't even emerge - the temacs binary (seems to be a semi-standalone elisp compiler used to bootstrap Emacs) segfaults immediately upon start, and GDB only says: (gdb) run -batch -l loadup dump Starting program: /var/tmp/portage/emacs-21.4-r1/work/emacs-21.4/src/temacs -batch -l loadup dump Warning: Cannot insert breakpoint -2. Error accessing memory address 0x266f3: Input/output error. Binutils-2.16.91.0.2 gives the same error, but with 2.16.90.0.3 at least Emacs builds, even though it doesn't run in X. Perhaps rebuilding the entire system with 2.16.1 or 2.16.91.0.2 would make Emacs build?
