The temacs binary built with either of them breaks in the same way as before. 
I'm currently rebuilding glibc and GCC with binutils-2.16.91.0.4, since:
1) The system is built with binutils-2.16.90.0.3.
2) Emacs built with binutils-2.16.90.0.3 works (sort of).
3) Emacs doesn't build with any other binutils version.

Hypothesis: Emacs needs to be built with the same binutils as something else.
Check: Rebuild system with 2.16.91.0.4, rebuilding Emacs works.

Hypothesis: Emacs only builds with 2.16.90.0.3 (of those versions >= 2.16.1 
available in Portage).
Check: Rebuild system with 2.16.91.0.4, rebuilding Emacs fails, downgrade to 
binutils-2.16.90.0.3, rebuilding Emacs works.

Hmm. While I was writing that, the build of glibc with binutils-2.16.91.0.4 
failed with:

  {standard input}: Assembler messages:
  {standard input}:765: Error: symbol `__divdi3' is already defined
  {standard input}:830: Error: symbol `__moddi3' is already defined
  {standard input}:905: Error: symbol `__udivdi3' is already defined
  {standard input}:934: Error: symbol `__umoddi3' is already defined
  make[2]: *** [/var/tmp/portage/glibc-2.3.5-r2/work/build-default-
  mips-unknown-linux-gnu-linuxthreads/csu/divdi3.os] Error 1

New plan: Rebuild everything with binutils-2.16.1 instead of 2.16.91.0.4. That 
should only take a week...
