I'm having trouble emerging sys-devel/gcc-4.5.4 on a PowerBook G4 (PowerBook6,1). My Gentoo install is fresh; I've added no packages beyond what the Handbook suggests for bare bones. My profile is default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/13.0/32bit-userland

(I had the same problem with sysdevel/gcc-4.6.3, which is why I downgraded to this version.)

The current working version of gcc is also 4.5.4, as installed by the stage tarball. This re-emerge is a result of some new libraries emerged after my first emerge --sync and emerge -avuND. revdep-rebuild wanted to recompile gcc against the new in order to remove old dependencies.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get gcc to compile on my machine? I've been looking for days in the forums and on Google.

Here's the last 50 lines of the build.log:

Much thanks for responding so quickly to my request, krinn! Your suggestion fixed my issue!

Apparently it was a bug having to do with the interaction between the gcc and texinfo packages.

Also thanks to DirtyHarry over in the Portage & Programming forum, and the guys at Bugzilla (Ryan Hill and Xarthisius) for squashing the bug.

Since they quickly added the fix to the Portage tree, all I had to do was:


# emerge --sync

# emerge --oneshot gcc

Now I've got a freshly compiled and updated gcc.

Thanks again. The Gentoo community is amazing!
