I'm almost done rebuilding the world with binutils-2.16.1, and will try
glibc-2.3.6 with binutils-184.108.40.206. then.
Until then, while rebuilding I've found:
1. mips-headers still has bug #94256 ("extern int errno;" instead of "#include
<errno.h>"), which was fixed in linux-headers in May. Changing that allows me
to build sys-apps/sysvinit-2.86-r3 (see also bug #113232 (which was for
2. while using FEATURES="maketest", a couple of packages don't pass their
