Hi all, I have some questions about a possible bug in Gentoo 1.1a

I'm trying to install Gentoo 1.1a again after re-partitioning my harddisk. During the bootstrap proces the problems begin: (prepare for a long read!)
After compiling glibc, binutils, gettext and gcc, the compile process fails at groff-1.17.2-r2.

the error message:
Code:

>>> Source unpacked.

The strange thing is, that gcc-2.95.3-r5 (which is installed just before groff-1.17.2-r1) isn´t recognised or isn´t working properly.

After some days, trying to figure out how to solve this a saw that somebody else also experienced this problem and submitted a bug-report
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1805

Today I tried to bypass the bootstrap-process and did a manual:
Code:
emerge gcc
directly followed by an
Code:
emerge groff

This worked, groff was compiling as it should.
btw: I also tried to install an earlier version of groff, which didn´t workout. (same error)

Ok, with groff compiled I tried an
Code:
emerge system

again problems with my C++ compiler, this time while attempting to compile db-3.2.3h-r4.

the error message:

the latter isn´t reported as a bug yet, it is probably the same bug anyway.

Some Questions:
    - Is anybody experiencing the same problems?
    - Does anybody know how to solve them'
    - Should I report the problems with db-3.2.3h-r4 as a bug?

Some extra info about my hardware and setup:
I have a Sony Vaio laptop, model PCG-Z600 TEK, main components are:
    Intel Pentium III 700 MHz
    128 MB sdram
    20 GB harddisk
    fdd (usb) and cdrom (pcmcia) both are external.

Hardisk layout:
    /dev/hda1 7.0 GB NTFS Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
    /dev/hda5 6.5 GB FAT32 General data partition
    /dev/hda6 50 MB EXT3 /boot
    /dev/hda7 450 MB swap
    /dev/hda8 3.5 GB EXT3 /
    /dev/hda9 500 MB EXT3 /home
    /dev/hda10 2.5 GB EXT3 /var

This are the optimizations I use (in /etc/make.conf)
Code:
# Pentium Pro/Pentium II/Pentium III+/Pentium 4/Athlon exclusive (binaries
# will use the P6 instruction set and only run on P6+ systems)
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="-march=i686 -O3 -pipe"

Any help, comments, suggestions or whatever are being appreciated.

Trying to bootstrap myself into Gentoo using the 1.2 x86 iso, and when it got to groff, it complained about no C++ compiler. So, I searched the forums and found this thread and the bugzilla entry... Just thought I'd drop in and let people know this is broken again, and I've gone and reopened the bug.

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1805

Here's hoping it gets fixed soon so's I can try out Gentoo; it sounds cool!

The latest update to the bugzilla entry suggests it's been fixed, though the bug is still open. I tried the bootstrap again last night and everything seems to have gone fine.

Now I just have to figure out everything else!
