Ugh, that wasn't quick and dirty.  Rather, it was quick and silly.  I
strongly urge you to format that disk and do a proper install.
Furthermore, you really shouldn't use n32 unless you really know what
you are doing, which I'm not sure of if you did an install like this.
It will only cause headaches.  For example, it seems like threaded apps
trigger a nasty bug in the kernel that causes a segfault and oops on n32
userland only, which effectively eliminates a great part of the portage
tree from being installed and used.  I really meant it earlier when I
said n32 wasn't for end users yet.
