Default Bug 291488, Binutils. Workaround?

OK, this is a Prefix related bug, but I don't want to bother the small
team, with every question of a gentoo beginner.

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=291488

Binutils tries to build a 64 bit module on a 32 bit machine: archive64
something.

They write I have to remove the -L/usr/sfw/lib/64 flag from the
"profile". I have no clue what I have to do here.

Perhaps you want to suggest I should do "emerge --sync" first. I can't
do this in this early step of bootstrapping Prefix. It works with a
customized overlay AFAIK.

Which file do I need to edit? Which additional parameter do I give to emerge?

(emerge --oneshot --nodeps binutils)

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.

Anyone else?
