Check your cflags in /etc/make.conf
what are you using USE="emerge" for I don't think there is a flag like that?

the USE flag 'emerge' isn't in the gentoo list of USE flags (available here http://www.gentoo.org/dyn/use-index.xml). try removing that and tell if there is a difference.

Why the =fomit should be -fomit-frame-pointer check your syntax it will mess up everything!

what stage did you install? cpu? cpu temp? ( I used to have problems with an overheating cpu, got illegal instruction and seg faults continuously when compiling).

Look at the error message again and see where it first starts to complain.Should be up some from your first post.We need to find out why it is bailing out.I have had problems before and sometimes it was a mistake on my part,not mounting something right or forgetting to do something other times it was a bad ebuild,it happens.I would start over and things would go smooth,like the first one was a learning experience.You just hate to start over because it takes so much time, but in the end it is worth it,good luck

This part looks like where the error happens
Code:
rm if geometry.dir LD_LIBRARY_PATH=../../../exports/lib XLOCALEDIR=../../../exports/lib/locale ../../../exports/bin/xkbcom -lfhlpR -o geometry.dir 'o'
make[5]: ***[geometry.dir] illegal instruction
First thing I would do is search the gentoo forums for "geometry.dir" and see what other people are doing to fix it. Normally when I'm following the guides I didn't do anything wrong and I search the forums to find that other people were having the exact same problems. If nothing turns up, wait a couple days if you can and update portage and try it again.

Here you go, this looks really good for you: http://forums.gentoo.org/search.php?...6f26033618a31b

ooops. The link won't go to the results page, so just search for geometry.dir on the gentoo forums. The first 3 results were xorg build problems and one said solved in the title.
