Angry compilation error. Problem with glibc

As in the thread. I'm gentoo user and I'm doind a clean installation right now but I had problems with emerging some of packages from kde. Here's is the output of the error:

var/tmp/portage/media-libs/gst-plugins-base-0.10.35/work/gst-plugins-base-0.10.35/gst-libs/gst/interfaces/tmp-introspectsjEWVb/.libs/GstInterfaces-0.10: /usr/lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by /usr/lib64/
/var/tmp/portage/media-libs/gst-plugins-base-0.10.35/work/gst-plugins-base-0.10.35/gst-libs/gst/interfaces/tmp-introspectsjEWVb/.libs/GstInterfaces-0.10: /usr/lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by /usr/lib64/
It's output of compilation fail of another package when I tried to do emerge -e world. And Yes I have glibc installed on my gentoo. It's glibc-2.15-r2 . I tried to recompile and reinstall glibc but this gave me nothing new. This problem still appears and I don't know what to do. If it's necessary I'll post an output of emerge --info and anything that is needed. Thanks for help in advance. <-- here you can find more info about compilation fail

Try recompiling glib (not glibc). Running revdep-rebuild won't harm either.

Well I recompiled glib and dbus-glib also but it is still not working properly. I tried to emerge libworkspace and this failed. Here's full output of this error. It cannot see glibc 2.15. Revdep-rebuild told me that everything's fine.

Solution found

So I've found a solution for the problem. Glibc-2.15 was really installed but only files in /lib64 and /lib32 were updated. Files in /usr/lib64 and /usr/lib32 remained untouched. I don't know the reason for this So I'll mark thread as solved a day or 2 later so that someone would answear this question. All i had to do was:
cp /lib64/ /usr/lib64/
cp /lib32/ /usr/lib32/
rm /usr/lib64/
ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/
rm /usr/lib32/
ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
At least something like that (written from memory cuz' I'm on different computer now). Thanks for interrest in thread.
EDIT: I guess noone knows answear So i mark this thread as solved.
