I'm having problems getting gentoo to install on a dual G5, and I'm about ready to throw in the towel. Here's what I get when doing an emerge system:


>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking perl-5.8.2.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/libperl-5.8.2/work
 Applying libperl-5.8.2-create-libperl-soname.patch...

First let's make sure your kit is complete.  Checking...
Locating common programs...
Checking compatibility between /bin/echo and builtin echo (if any)...
Symbolic links are supported.
Checking how to test for symbolic links...
Your builtin 'test -h' may be broken.
Trying external '/bin/test -h'.
I do not know how you can test for symbolic links.
Good, your tr supports [:lower:] and [:upper:] to convert case.
Using [:upper:] and [:lower:] to convert case.

Which of these apply, if any? [none] 
hint to use instead? [none] 
Operating system name? [none] 
Operating system version? [none] 
Build Perl for SOCKS? [n] 
Use the PerlIO abstraction layer? [y] 
Build a threading Perl? [y] 
Use the newer interpreter-based ithreads? [y] 
Use which C compiler? [gcc] 
Checking for GNU cc in disguise and/or its version number...

*** WHOA THERE!!! ***

    Your gcc has not been compiled for the exact release of
    your operating system (Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc/powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu/3.4.0/specs versus ).

    In general it is a good idea to keep gcc synchronized with
    the operating system because otherwise serious problems
    may ensue when trying to compile software, like Perl.

    I'm trying to be optimistic here, though, and will continue.
    If later during the configuration and build icky compilation
    problems appear (headerfile conflicts being the most common
    manifestation), I suggest reinstalling the gcc to match
    your operating system release.

Now, how can we feed standard input to your C preprocessor...
Directories to use for library searches? [/usr/local/lib /lib /usr/lib] 
What is the file extension used for shared libraries? [so] 
Try to use long doubles if available? [n] 
Checking for optional libraries...
What libraries to use?
[-lnsl -lndbm -lgdbm -ldb -ldl -lm -lcrypt -lutil -lc -lbsd] 
What optimizer/debugger flag should be used? [-O2] 
Any additional cc flags? [-fno-strict-aliasing] 
Let me guess what the preprocessor flags are...
Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)? [ -L/usr/local/lib] 
Checking your choice of C compiler and flags for coherency...
I've tried to compile and run the following simple program:

#include <stdio.h>
int main() { printf("Ok\n"); return(0); }

I used the command:

   gcc -o try -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -L/usr/local/lib try.c -lnsl -lndbm -lgdbm -ldb -ldl -lm -lcrypt -lutil -lc -lbsd

and I got the following output:

/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu/3.4.0/../../../../powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -ldb
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
I can't compile the test program.
You have a BIG problem.  Shall I abort Configure [y] 
Ok.  Stopping Configure.
Calculating system dependencies    ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 64) sys-devel/libperl-5.8.2 to /
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) perl-5.8.2.tar.gz

This is after booting Tom Gall's snapshot iso version 2004.1, and following the first 6 chapters of the install guide using the 2004.2 stage1 file, provided on Tom Gall's page.

Did you set nptl in make.conf? It did not compile for me either till I removed it.
