OK, this is a Prefix related bug, but I don't want to bother the small

Binutils tries to build a 64 bit module on a 32 bit machine: archive64
That bug seems to concern mostly Solaris and mostly on SPARC, if I read
it correctly. Is that your situation?
Anyway, the word "profile" in gentoo usually refers to a symlink in /etc
pointing to a subdirectory in /usr/portage/profiles/*, like this:
$ls -l /etc/make.profile
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 52 2009-10-23 17:34 /etc/make.profile -> /usr/portage/profiles/default/linux/x86/10.0/desktop
Now, *my* profile (linux/x86) is a long way from Solaris/SPARC, so YMMV.
Have a look at /usr/portage/profiles/profiles.desc and see if any of the
entries seem to fit your situation.
Using 64-bit LDFLAGS (/etc/make.conf) on a 32-bit machine seems like a
fundamental error that should never occur if you are using the right
installation medium (CD?DVD) for your hardware.
I think more info from you will be needed, but ATM I don't know the right
questions to ask you.
