9 The first problem I see is that db-3.2.9 has not been tested by the system
10 team so it should not be included by default. It looks like Hallski added
11 it but forgot to add it to package.mask; I will make the necessary changes
12 now. I'm hoping that the older db will work fine. I'm guessing that you're
13 getting this error during *bootstrap*? Because after bootstrap is complete,
14 you should have a working c++ compiler (g++) installed. I just finished
15 scanning the deps and really can't find anything in bootstrap that should
16 depend on db. Please make sure you are doing a bootstrap before attempting
17 an "emerge system". If you do an "emerge rsync" now, emerge should now want
18 to use db-3.2.3 rather than the newer 3.2.9 if forgetting to do a bootstrap
19 wasn't the problem.

26 We'll need to track those down.
