Also, I'm curious who the hell told you that you should try to compile
userland apps with gcc-mips64. They are smoking the funky
crack...possibly rainbow or neon colored. In any case, portage won't
even try to use gcc-mips64 unless you do something really dumb to your
make.conf, in which case everything that you attempt to build will die
pretty much right away.
