I'm in the middle of a stage 2 install on ppc64 (Dual 1.8 Powermac G5). I ran "emerge system" and right now it is failing when building autoconf-2.59-r6. It fails during configuration, saying that it cannot find perl. So I try to emerge perl, and of course, the first dependency it tries to fulfill for this is autoconf and again it can't find perl. So naturally I'm stuck. Does anybody here know how to get by this problem? I don't want to install packages without first satisfying its dependencies. My USE flags are below. Thanks in advance..

Hi there.

It seems like your proplem has already been solved.

If you look at this forum, then you can propaply see a topic named:

"You need perl 5" error [SOLVED]

Why dont you head there and see if you can fix it yourself :)
