Well, that confirms 2.16.91.0.[34] is h0rked. That's the same error (iirc) that I saw w/ .3. 2.16.91.0.2 was the only one that built glibc correctly. Whether this is a glibc or binutils bug, is, however, uncertain. There's a new glibc-2.3.6 in portage -- that might be worth a shot if you're feeling brave. I haven't gotten to testing that yet as I'm still tweaking some new kernel releases, probably followed by newer mips-headers. --Kumba -- Gentoo/MIPS Team Lead Gentoo Foundation Board of Trustees "Such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere." --Elrond -- gentoo-mips@g.o mailing list
