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?

I'll try.
