I have experienced something like this with another ebuild. The problem was the the config.sub file had not been updated to included the latest amd64 types. What I did was add a line to the ebuild like this:
Code:
cp /usr/share/gnuconfig/config.sub .
so that the source_compile section of the ebuild looks like
Code:
src_compile() {
        cp /usr/share/gnuconfig/config.sub .
        econf || die
        emake || die "emake failure"
}

This then gives the autoconf system the latest machine types. I'm not sure this will solve your problem though since my ebuild was complaining about an undefined "host" type, not a build system type. Furthermore, I have iputils emerged and did not experience your difficulty. Hope it helps.

By the way. Take the line
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64"
out of your make.conf. It will cause you much trouble. Unmask each ebuild individually as you go along. Otherwise you will end up with a version of glibc that has been masked for amd64 because it hasn't been shown to work, while there is one already unmasked specifically for amd64. Unless you really want to build a bleeding-edge test system, of course.
