Half way through gentoo install, I get problems.... logger won't compile(I think)

Well, I'm halfway through the Gentoo install, I'm on page 41 of 99 in the gentoo handbook(for those of you who have it printed out). I'm trying to install a system logger, but, I try to emerge syslog-ng, I get this error

make*** No rule to make target 'j3'. stop

!!!ERROR: dev-libs/libol-0.3.17 failed.
Call stack:, line 1546: called dyn_compile, line 937: called src_compile
libol-0.3.17.ebuild, line 27: called die
!!!emake failed
!!!if you need support, post the topmost build error and the call stack if relevant.

So, that is the problem. Any input? did I configure my make.conf wrong?
