Hey Folks:

I am building a new system, and the install is done, and I emerged a few 
things, vim for instance, and they went OK.

Then I tried to emerge ntp apache samba postgresql php
and I got
---------------------------------------------------
ERROR: dev-libs/libpcre-7.8 failed.
  * Call stack:
  *               ebuild.sh, line   49:  Called src_compile
  *             environment, line 2345:  Called econf 
'--with-match-limit-recursion=8192' '--enable-utf8' 
'--enable-unicode-properties' '--enable-cpp' '--enable-pcregrep-libz' 
'--enable-pcregrep-libbz2' '--enable-static' 
'--htmldir=/usr/share/doc/libpcre-7.8/html' 
'--docdir=/usr/share/doc/libpcre-7.8'
  *               ebuild.sh, line  529:  Called die
  * The specific snippet of code:
  *                      die "econf failed"
  *  The die message:
  *   econf failed

--------------------------------------------------
then I tried to emerge ntp alone and got:

-----------------------------------------
* ERROR: net-misc/ntp-4.2.4_p6 failed.
  * Call stack:
  *               ebuild.sh, line   49:  Called src_compile
  *             environment, line 2099:  Called econf

'--disable-debugging' '--with-crypto'
  *               ebuild.sh, line  529:  Called die
  * The specific snippet of code:
  *                      die "econf failed"
  *  The die message:
  *   econf failed
---------------------------------------------

If I need to post additional info, just let me know, I haven't done this 
before so I'll need a little tutoring.

Thanks - Joseph
