Well as I suspected had a small issue with paludis's install, that was fixed 
by running fix_libtool_files.sh. As usuall gentoo loves to hard code those 
paths to gcc.  Do you think that they will ever fix that problem? Oh well, 
hard coded paths fixed and all is back to being well with the world. By the 
way the failure was in the tests. Paludis itself finished the compile.
