my bad :) heres the log
Comment 3 Nathan Sullivan 2005-03-13 17:00:42 UTC
log added.
Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-03-13 21:01:24 UTC
what version of sys-devel/gnuconfig ?

what does `sh /usr/share/gnuconfig/config.guess` display ?
Comment 5 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-14 00:36:48 UTC
Please attach output of:

  # cd /; ld --help 2>&1 sed -ne '/supported emulations:/!d;s/[ ][ ]*/ /g; s/.*supported emulations: *//; s/ .*//'
Comment 6 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-14 00:38:12 UTC
I am assuming config.guess display the `i686-pc-linux-oldld'.
Comment 7 Nathan Sullivan 2005-03-14 14:45:12 UTC
gnuconfig version is 20050223

sh /usr/share/gnuconfig/config.guess results in i686-pc-linux-oldld

btw, something weird i noticed....

/ # ld
bash: ld: command not found

last i remember ld should be there somewhere :)
Comment 8 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-03-14 15:15:59 UTC
if you run `binutils-config 1`, does `ld` and such work again ?
Comment 9 Nathan Sullivan 2005-03-14 16:29:27 UTC
yep, resolved. not sure where that issue originated...

as SpanKY said, this was related to a previous bug with toolchain-binutils.eclass
