Compile Issues

First rebuilding with simpler {C,CXX,LD}FLAGS:

CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -march=i686" \
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}" \
LDFLAGS=" " emerge ${PACKAGE}
  1. If that works, then troubleshoot by readding all of your CFLAGS one-by-one, then LDFLAGS. That's how I came up with the CFLAGS I'm using so I believe that they should work flawlessly so far as you change the -mtune option to match your arch.
  2. Check http://bugs.gentoo.org for a similar bug, file one if necessary.

DNS Problems

Code: Changing permissions on /etc/resolv.conf
chmod 0644 /etc/resolv.conf
