Hello all,

Trying to put the finishing touches on a new install, and compiling
the wireless driver is failing. Machine is a Toshiba Satellite L450,

 2.6.34-gentoo-r6 #2 SMP Mon Sep 27 05:48:15 MDT 2010 x86_64
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4400 @ 2.20GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

lspci reports the device as: 14:00.0 Network controller: Realtek
Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8172 (rev 10)

Scratching my head here, as before installing gentoo I fired it up
with a knoppix disk, and I was able to download and compile the
drivers directly from Realtek's website, and wireless worked just
fine. Based on that I'm thinking it's not a bug, but rather something
wrong with my environment. Hoping I'm overlooking something simple

Am I forgetting any pertinent info? Thanks for any ideas...
