on http://dev.gentoo.org/~tgall/ insructions say not to emerge sync. What about post-install? Antybody successful?

I have never bothered with this, as I installed Gentoo on my ppc64 before the quoted mention appeared on the page. No emerge sync appeared to break anything ever, but I also have a slightly older G5 (Powermac 7,2). I am assuming that the note means that you should not do such a thing before the install, but of course this is just a wild guess (that's why I was hesitant to answer your post).

i spoke with tgall about this about a week or so ago. there are two packages that have issues and those are glibc and development-sources. you may wish to ask him again. the best place to reach him is in #ppc64.

I emerged sync and it worked fine. you just have to ask tgall for the link to download the patched development sources. nothing else on portage works. But other than that you can emerge sync just fine.
