there isn't a specific bug on the topic. there are random ones where people try to emerge gcc and it errors out when building the 32bit ABI. this is generally because they started off with a no-multilib profile and then later switched it a multilib profile. we've just marked them as INVALID: install a multilib stage3 if you want multilib.
