It works for me. If this is a bug in the system's development tools,
there isn't much that the Makefiles can do about it.

First, ensure that you have a clean source tree with no local
modifications. Then, run:

	make clean
	make -d -j 4 DIRS=lib &> build.log
	gzip -9 build.log

Send me the build.log.gz file.

I'm may be less responsive than usual for the next few days, as one of

I also have Gentoo/x86, although I use gcc 3.4.6.
