1 Hi,
2 I'm not expecting that I can get a simple answer to this so I'm
3 posting one of very many errors I'm seeing now. Please excuse the
4 nature of my frustration here. I'm venting at this point.
6 <RANT>
7 I've been messing with a standard x86, middle of the road Gentoo
8 machine for over two days now. There must be 20 or 30 packages that
9 won't build. Frustrating.
11 I've updated portage and emerge -DuN system installed clean the first time.
13 Most of the problems are in and around getting Gnome updated. Typical
14 of the problem, but definitely not limited to this, is the following
15 sort of message. Unfortunately every one of the failing packages is
16 giving different messages so there's nothing obvious to me here.
18 1-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -latk-1.0 -lpangocairo-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lcairo
19 -lrsvg-2 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lm -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl
20 -lglib-2.0 -lxml2 -lart_lgpl_2 -lXi -lX11
21 mkdir .libs
22 libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/' or
23 unhandled argument `/usr/lib/'

48 stack if relevant.
49 !!! A complete build log is located at

52 What a mess! I've never in over 6 years of using Gentoo ever seen
53 things in worse shape. Two days of this. No fun.
55 I do think that a good part of this problem is more of the expat
56 stuff. I had hoped it would be fixed up in portage before I got around
57 to working on this machine but with upcoming death of the older
58 versions of MythTV and the requirements to go to newer versions I had
59 to get to work. Bummer. 2 days work and no end in sight.
61 </RANT>
63 I don't suppose anyone is really still reading but if you are and
64 have some idea what's gone wrong here please let me know. I'm lost.
66 Thanks,
67 Mark
