    emerge gnome

    whilst emerging gnome it wants to emerge imagemagick

    That errors after about 5 minutes on

    i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -L../magick/.libs -lMagick -shared -L/usr/local/lib Magick.o -o blib/arch/auto/Image/Magick/ \t -lbz2 -lz -lpthread -lm -lpthread

    /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.1.1/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lMagick
    collect2: id returned 1 exit status
    make[1]: *** [blib/arch/auto/Image/Magick/] Error 1
    make[1]L Leaving directory '/var/tmp/portage/imagemagick-'
    make: *** [all-perl] Error 2
    make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

    !!! Error: media-gfx/imagemagick- failed.
    Call stack:, line 1546L called dyn_compile line 937: called src_compile
    imagemagick-, line 86: called die

    !!! compile problem

    so far i've tried simply issuing 'emerge imagemagick' and i get the same error - trying to restart emerge gnome also errors in the same place.
    emerging perl and then trying both of the aforementioned emerges also fails (guessed maybe the PerlMagick had something to do with it)

    Imagemagick IRC (freenode) has tried but hasn't come up with anything yet

    I'd really like to use gnome :-\

    do you need imagemagick? I think there's a dependancy of gnome that has an imagemagick use flag you could unset...

    Just wanted to say that I'm getting the same issue from emerging KDE. Will try a bunch of things and post back if I find a solution.

    Just use
    emerge --resume --skipfirst
    to get past that, and then go back and look at the problem after everything else compiles.

    Code is Poetry
