Hi all!
I'm new to Gentoo and i'm trying to install it for the first time, and experiencing an issue when running 'emerge sys-boot/grub', according to Handbook.
It fails with message
Code:
configure: error: grub-mkfont was explicitly requested but can't be compiled

What could this be?

Please post the relevant build output to one of those pastebins on the net.

I never used it but I think wgetpaste does the job too.

Usually at the end of the emerge command you see some references to those files, please upload those files completly to one pastepin so we can check it.

also provide

emerge -av (package) => e.g. emerge -av grub

and anything else which may help.

without detail informations it is hard to help you in this regard.
