Error: you are cross compiling
Please Use the '--host=" option

Error: Dev-libs/ucl-l.010r1 failed

Function econf, line 365, exitcode1

especially the CHOST variable in make.conf.
There is this line in the manpage of make.conf.

Quote:

CHOST This variable is passed by the ebuild scripts to the configure
step as --host=${CHOST}. This way you can force the build-host.
