I'm trying to compile kernel 2.6.0, but it complains that I have an old compiler (because I egcs64 installed so that I can compile "old" kernels).
I've checked on arch/sparc64/Makefile to see how it detects my old compiler and I see that on one place it tries to use gcc or sparc64-linux-gcc (witch is a link to the egcs compiler). The way it makes that choice, is by executing "gcc -m64 -S -o /dev/null -xc /dev/null" to see if gcc has support for building 64 bits binaries, and here is my complain :).
Other distributions (e.g. debian unstable) have had several gcc version for the sparc64 arquitecture with 64 bit compiling enabled. Could this be added to gentoo's gcc?

Weird... I really don't have a clue how this dup got here.
