I'd venture to say the SELinux profile hasn't been updated/tested in
some time. It's handled by the selinux/hardened team so we can't help
much there.

I'd say try with the current stable toolchain for sparc rather than
venturing into higher things.

The greatest and fastest gcc won't let you emerge system as it currently
stands. Mostly other ebuilds need fixing, out of the top of my head
linux-headers needs love and at least kbd will break without it.
