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