Fresh install of Gentoo. Following the x86 quick-install guide. After compiling kernel and installing logger, cron, etc, and rebooting, I set PORTAGE_BINHOST to point to a server on my other system, which has been running Gentoo for a while and has lots of packages built.
I do "emerge -vaG gnome" on the new system, and I get this error:
Fetching binary packages info...
Loaded metadata pickle.
cache miss: 'x' --- cache hit: 'o'
(a few hundred Os printed here...)

!!! Error calculating dependencies. Please correct.
emerge -va gnome works fine (shows a few dozen ebuilds). And it happens with some packages (gnome, mozilla) but not others (gnumeric, abiword, gftp, gaim). emerge sync, fixpackages, and updating portage didn't fix it.
Steps to Reproduce:
fixpackages run on those packages?
(They must be properly located in PKGDIR)
Seems like an old, bad DEPEND line in a binary package.
Does -d produce any useful info?
Sorry, I have been AFK for a few days. Yes, --debug helped. Without it, portage told me nothing whatsoever about the package in question. With it, portage told me where the problem was.
