I maintain an up-to-date system that requires gcj.   For some time, running
revdep-rebuild -p generates this output:

Checking reverse dependencies...

All prepared. Starting rebuild...

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Now you can remove -p (or --pretend) from arguments and re-run 

But re-emerging gcc doesn't solve the dependency problem.  In fact, both and appear to be installed by "emerge gcc". and
both appear on my system, and both appear to be installed by "emerge 
gcc".  However,
both are located in /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.1.1, not in /usr/lib.

Is this a bug, or is there something I can do to fix my system?  (Other 
than put in
soft links to the needed libraries.)
