11 I'm almost done rebuilding the world with binutils-2.16.1, and will try
12 glibc-2.3.6 with binutils-[34] then.
14 Until then, while rebuilding I've found:
16 1. mips-headers still has bug #94256 ("extern int errno;" instead of "#include
17 <errno.h>"), which was fixed in linux-headers in May. Changing that allows me
18 to build sys-apps/sysvinit-2.86-r3 (see also bug #113232 (which was for
19 linux-headers-2.4)).
21 2. while using FEATURES="maketest", a couple of packages don't pass their
22 testsuites (but I haven't had any problems using any of them). I'll return
23 with a full list when I have rebuilt everything, and after checking if they
24 break on other arches too.
