Unable to update binutils



Hi all,

I am unable to update my binutils. At first I received errors about conflicts and the files pointed to some /usr/share/locale files. I tried searching through forums and attempted various solutions, and I just made it worse. Has anyone else encountered this before?

1) I attempted to update (emerge -auDN --with-bdeps=y)

2) I unmerged binutils (DONT DO THIS!!!)

3) I tried to restore binutils and was able to get a version back

# eselect binutils show


4) I tried removing the "-march=native" flags in my make,conf, but it did not change anything

Current errors:

configure: error: in `/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/build':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details
 * ERROR: sys-devel/binutils-9999::core-kit failed (configure phase):
 *   (no error message)
 * Call stack:
 *     ebuild.sh, line  92:  Called src_configure
 *   environment, line 3618:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *       "${S}"/configure "${myconf[@]}" || die;

I've attached the build.log and config.log

Any advice is appreciated!
