Could this be related to the cause?
Yeah for sure. I think I hit the same issue and I added a little note for it in the bootstrap guide. If you're bootstrapping 64-bits, you need to have the 64-bits paths in your searchpath, where they are non standard. It's in this line: If you are targetting a 64-bits native Prefix, append -L and -R flags for /usr/sfw/lib/64 to your LDFLAGS. Additionally set CC="gcc -m64", CXX="g++ -m64" and HOSTCC="gcc -m64". note the /usr/sfw/lib/64, it contains the 64-bits version of, that the linker should find (after skipping the incompatible 32-bits version). If you already did this, it looks like something weird is going on. -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo on a different level -- gentoo-alt@l.g.o mailing list
