This was not a problem with gstreamer but instead a problem with me using systemd and removing openrc, which somehow caused my toolchain to not be able to build executables.  Sorry for the noise.
Comment 4 Denis M. (Phr33d0m) 2013-08-12 21:08:15 UTC
And in any case "C compiler can't make executable" would be a gcc issue, not a gstreamer's.

Your `as` executable is broken as per config.log.

This has something to with your sys-devel/binutils package and does not have much to do with a switch of init system; that may be a perception, but I feel it was likely part of one of your most recent world updates.

So, please emerge sys-devel/binutils again to fix it up.
