If anyone has an opinion or suggestion, I'm willing to hear it!

Already filed a bug for it (https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=492920), but thought I would do a forum post on the off chance that someone had an idea as to what my problem would be. I have had my box up and running for some time (about two years according to my old blog post - http://office-supply-liberation.blogspot.com/2012/02/dell-xps-8300-kernel-configuration-tips.html) and everything was fine.

Then on Nov 28th I stop home for a second and do an emerge --sync and kick-off an update. Well that was a mistake as everything crashed horribly. The next morning I spend time recovering my data and then by the afternoon I am ready to re-install. (in between I ran a memory test and everything passed). The re-install goes fine and then I try to do an update from stage3-amd64-20131031 to today (2013-11-29) and everything goes sideways again.

From my reading of things, it really looks like the problem is the remove of glibc-2.15-r3 based on this emerge output:

Code:
The ebuild phase 'postrm' has been killed by signal 11.
The 'postrm' phase of the 'sys-lib/glibc-2.15-r3' package has failed
with exit value 1

The problem occurred while executing the ebuild file named 'glibc-2.15-r3' located in the /var/db/pkg/sys-libs/glibc-2.15-r3' directory. If necessary, manual remove the environment.bz2 file and/or the ebuild file located in that directory.

Removal of the environment.bz2 file is preferred since it may allow the remove phases to execute successfully. The ebuild will be sourced and the eclasses from the current portage tree will be used when necessary. Remove of the ebuild file will cause pkg_prerm() and pkg_postrm() remove phases to be skipped entirely


Anybody seen this before and/or have some suggested workarounds?

Well it would appear someone else encountered this issue and has a cause & workaround.

As from Bug #492920, the issue appears to be a CFLAG has '-frecord-gcc-switches' being set (which I had set). Removing this flag from make.conf and things compiled without issue.
