I assume you are on a MacTel machine, as why GCC won't build.  As for
the userland, yes we aim for a GNU userland, because I have the opinion
that the Gentoo mainline tree is written for that userland.  Diego does
a great job making the tree able to cope with a BSD userland, but to
avoid all these little annoyances with find, awk, etc. in prefix it is
only a small effort to make it a GNU userland.
