debugging.  I was trying different options to try and get things working...

Yep.  I know that and am setting DEFAULT_PATH

etc/portage is being created.

This directory is NOT being created!

Going throught the output of configure, make, make install, the only
(somewhat troubling) thing I can see is this:

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/spike/portage/portage-prefix-2.1.11/pym'
Making install in cnf
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/spike/portage/portage-prefix-2.1.11/cnf'
/usr/bin/install -c -d -m 755 -o spike -g spike /tmp/Mar20/etc

Portage does not have an arch-specific configuration for this arch.
Please notify the arch maintainer about this issue. Using generic.

/bin/sh ..//subst-install --installcmd='/usr/bin/install -c -o spike
-g spike -m 644' ./make.globals /tmp/Mar20/etc/make.globals
/bin/sh ..//subst-install --installcmd='/usr/bin/install -c -o spike
-g spike -m 644' ./make.conf /tmp/Mar20/etc/make.conf.example
/bin/sh ..//subst-install --installcmd='/usr/bin/install -c -o spike
-g spike -m 644' ./etc-update.conf /tmp/Mar20/etc/etc-update.conf
/bin/sh ..//subst-install --installcmd='/usr/bin/install -c -o spike
-g spike -m 644' ./dispatch-conf.conf
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/spike/portage/portage-prefix-2.1.11/cnf'

The Makefile in the "cnf" directory is looking for a make.globals.x86
file which isn't there.  This seems like the only fishy thing I can

Note that there was nothing written to stderr, and no warnings or
error other than that above.
