13 Well, it's at least consistent! <g>
15 I was hoping that the rebuild would correct the problem before it got to
16 anything affected by it, but it seems not.
18 Did you try a diff on the configure.log (config.log?) from the successful
19 non-portage run and the unsuccessful portage run? As I said in a previous
20 response, with any luck at all, that should reveal the difference, and
21 from there it should be possible to work backward to what environmental
22 difference caused it.
24 For kicks, if you go back to stable portage (looks like 2.1-r1, from my
25 sync about 18 hours ago), does that fix it? What about going back to 2.0.5x
26 portage (2.0.54-r2, or Note that you should do an emerge
27 --metadata after reverting to 2.0.5x.
