Can you post give additional information of your system? And the content of your make.conf (cat /etc.make.conf).
And of course the last 20-30 lines before this error-message appears.

Best regards,
Jimini

Installing Gentoo is best done with the handbook:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/
It is available in Polish.
I suggest you start over and follow the instructions in the handbook.

If you have problem compiling kernel on a brand new install, you probably have problem with compiler/toolchain.

Which means probably you downloaded an old stage3 archive, or something like that. I agree, you need to go through the Handbook (hopefully the one in Polish is updated)
