    I had the same exact problem, and that fixed it. After emerging baselayout, I had to change a few config files, but afterwards it all worked. Thanks!

    The portage tree I am using is a partial portage tree. And the packages required for emerging baselayout are unavailable. How can I install these packages otherwise. I am not getting their source files. Please help me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah reemerging baselayout helped me too... I had the same problem as well. If I understand correctly you should be able to add more mirrors to your /etc/make.conf. Here is the entry at the bottom of mine:

    GENTOO_MIRRORS="ftp://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/pub/linux/gentoo ftp://ftp.ucsb.edu/pub/mirrors/linux/gentoo/ http://mirror2.etf.bg.ac.yu/gentoo/"

    Ok I finally fetched the packages from somewhere else, placed them in /usr/portage/distfiles and emerged baselayout. That solves the problem. Thanks everyone.
