When I try to emerge glibc-2.4-r3, that's the message I get.

Code:
checking whether powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc -mcpu=G4 -mtune=G4 -pipe -freorder-blocks -O2 -mlong-double-128 uses IBM extended format... no
checking whether powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc -mcpu=G4 -mtune=G4 -pipe -freorder-blocks -O2 supports -mabi=ibmlongdouble... no
configure: error: this configuration requires -mlong-double-128 IBM extended format support

!!! ERROR: sys-libs/glibc-2.4-r3 failed.
Call stack:
  ebuild.sh, line 1539:   Called dyn_compile
  ebuild.sh, line 939:   Called src_compile
  glibc-2.4-r3.ebuild, line 1179:   Called toolchain-glibc_src_compile
  glibc-2.4-r3.ebuild, line 251:   Called glibc_do_configure 'nptl'
  glibc-2.4-r3.ebuild, line 941:   Called die


This message appends with gcc-3.4.6 and gcc-4.1.1
I don't know what to do. Does anyone here know?

I had the same error. I then upgraded to gcc 4.1.1 first and then upgraded glibc since glibc-2.4 requires gcc4.

Code:
gcc-config powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu-4.1.1
source /etc/profile

These are the lines I was missing after emerging gcc-4.1.1 and before emerging glibc-2.4-r3 :-/
