Hi Ti,

Here is the output that you asked for:

venues root # emerge info
Portage 2.0.50-r9 (default-x86-2004.2, gcc-3.3.3, glibc-, 
System uname: 2.4.26-gentoo-r6 i686 Pentium III (Coppermine)
Gentoo Base System version 1.4.16
Autoconf: sys-devel/autoconf-2.59-r3
Automake: sys-devel/automake-1.8.3
CFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=i686 -fomit-frame-pointer"
CONFIG_PROTECT="/etc /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb /usr/kde/2/share/config 
/usr/kde/3.2/share/config /usr/kde/3/share/config /usr/lib/globus-2.4/etc 
/usr/lib/mozilla/defaults/pref /usr/share/config /var/qmail/control"
CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK="/etc/gconf /etc/terminfo /etc/env.d"
CXXFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=i686 -fomit-frame-pointer"
FEATURES="autoaddcvs ccache sandbox"
USE="X apm arts avi berkdb crypt cups encode foomaticdb gdbm gif gnome gpm gtk 
gtk2 imlib jpeg kde libg++ libwww mad mikmod motif mozilla mpeg ncurses nls 
oggvorbis opengl oss pam pdflib perl png python qt quicktime readline sdl 
slang spell ssl svga tcpd truetype x86 xml2 xmms xv zlib"

and the output from "qpkg -I -i -v > qpkg.out.txt" is attached.
I have a couple of perl packages that have USE flags including -threads
That option doesn't appear anywhere else.

My /etc/make.conf doesn't have a USE list yet, I guess I'm getting
package defaults:

   venues root # more /etc/make.conf
   # These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically

   #  built this stage
   # Please consult /etc/make.conf.example for a more detailed example
   CFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=i686 -fomit-frame-pointer"

Would adding USE="-threads"  and recompiling X be enough?

Thank you,
