Looks like you just need to add some use flags to some of your dependencies. If you haven't yet, add this to your make.conf file:

EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS=" --autounmask-write"

This will unmask your needed use flags after you perform the first emerge. If the flags that get unmasked are ok with you, then type etc-update and use the new package.use file. Then type your emerge once again.

Thank you!

The problem were a cflag in make.conf

-march=k10 which is wrong. (Should be -march=amdfam10)
