Howdy all. I've recently switched my profile over to 2006.1, and as a result, am attempting to recompile with the new USE flags. Unfortunately, we are having a problem.
Basically, nptl (which glibc now compiles with) requires a CHOST of i486 or better. Mine is i386, presumably because I did the Stage3 install (as the Handbook now does) on my latest install. I know that my computer works with i686, but everything in the Gentoo forums says that changing the CHOST is a horrible idea that causes puppies to fall on ironclad bamboo stakes. Or something along those lines.
So the idea is, how can I change the CHOST to allow my glibc to update?
