    Trouble bootstrapping...

    Hi, I think I've come here once before with a gentoo-related issue, and thank you for solving it
    But a new problem has arisen. I've followed the instructions in the handbook almost exactly (well, my partition table was different, and I skipped the GLIBC locales, but that's because I don't need to change them) , and gotten to the bootstrap point. It worked fine for a few minutes, but soon I got an error message:
    *Building sandbox for ABI=default...
    make:*** No rule to make target 'j2'. Stop.

    !!! ERROR: sys-apps/sandbox-1.2.12 failed.
    !!! Function src_compile, Line 78, Exitcode 0
    !!! emake failed for default
    My MAKEOPTS parameter in my make.conf is set to j2. Might that have something to do with it? Well, in any case, any help is appreciated!

    Again, it seems I have made a silly grammitical error in my make.conf. When specifying my "MAKEOPTS" flags I typed in "j2" instead of "-j2". Sorry for wasting your time!
