on ppc openssl compiled with gcc-3.3.3_pre20040215 builds but can't access public keys
to check quickly:
openssl dsa -in ~/.ssh/id_dsa -text -noout
The pre snapshots cannot do basic file I/O.
Problems range from ccache not being able to keep a cache, to gcc not being able to output .o files.
I'd stronly advise against keeping those in ~ppc. gcc-3.3.3.ebuild works more that perfect. In fact I am compiling a complete GRP set based on that compiler and the _pre0207 glibc. Have even enabled nptl, with 2.6.4 headers. (only mac-fdisk and sash complained - might think about removing those from stage3 (nobody is going to fdisk partitions from a stage3 chroot anyway. Not sure who uses sash)
no longer an issue with 0408-r1
