12 I ran into this a while back and I had to do a emerge -e system then a
13 emerge -e world. I'm not saying to do this yet but if no one posts a
14 fix, you may have to try that route.
16 In the meantime, make sure everything in make.conf is set correctly.
17 Check for typos and other silly mistakes. Maybe post it here and see if
18 someone else sees something. I don't even want to try to count the
19 times all of us have had a typo that wrecks everything.
21 Check gcc-config -l to make sure it is set. I have corrected issues in
22 the past by changing it to a older gcc then back to the new one. I
23 guess something got corrupted or something. It only takes a few
24 seconds, it could be worth a try. Running env-update and source
25 /etc/profile in between while at it.
27 You can try revdep-rebuild to see if that helps but it may not.
28 Sometimes you have to run that multiple times and check for mixing
29 stable and unstable packages. There are occasions where mixing
30 stable/unstable does not turn out to well.
32 This is a common thing and I wouldn't file a bug report. It usually
33 turns out to be a operator error or some setting that got messed up.
