I just finished doing a reinstall of my amd64 machine (using x86 though) and 
upon doing a:

  # emerge --update --deep --newuse world

(I'd edited my use flags and done an emerge sync) I got this:

  # emerge --update --deep --newuse world
  Calculating world dependencies ...done!

  make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

I tried emerging gettext again, no joy.  rebooting didn't help either.  What 
am I missing?
