Back into the breach (Gentoo setup attempt since I can't sleep...)
Last update on .
Wound up getting two coffee's at the pool hall this evening, so I'm a bit wired. Sounds like the perfect time to try Gentoo again. How many times am I going to rebuild this dratted system I wonder to myself... oh well, maybe it'll build character.

So, from what I can tell, all of my problems stemmed from incorrectly specifying the -march and -mcpu flags in my make.conf. However, simply setting them back to i686 (I'd changed them both to "athlon-xp" doesn't fix anything, GCC still crashes on just about every compilation.<br />
After playing with various approaches to try and fix it with re-building gcc, libtools, etceteras, I eventually decided to go whole-hog and rebuild the whole "world" from the ground up. So far that seems to be working, 28 packages (of 380) have built (I assume correctly) so far, but we're still not up to the packages that were failing previously.<br />
BTW, telling Gentoo to rebuild every package on the machine (or at least, those registered in the world file) is pretty simple:<br />
emerge --emptytree world<br />
then be prepared to wait for at least a few days. I'm going to let it run tonight, but I'll have to kill the rebuild so I can do some work tomorrow (since I can't compile anything high-level I can't install needed packages for working on the machine while it rebuilds). Luckily you can tell emerge to continue from an interrupted operation :) .

And the gnats destroy the volvos :( . Even cutting down to just rebuilding gcc with --emptytree and -X winds up failing in the OpenSSL dependency with the same dratted gcc failures. Trying now to just build the modules that include ld (which is what is segfaulting). Sigh, probably should have just nuked the whole thing and started from scratch.

Rebuilding the 4 modules that "own" ld wound up making it possible to build a number of packages, but I'm still fubarred for the Qt library, I'm guessing there's some other library that got messed up by being compiled with the wrong -march flag. Anyway, wound up working on that until 4:30 this morning, then got up at 10... I think I need a nap before I'm going to be able to produce any real work. Looks like another late night tonight.
