Error with Gentoo 2005.0 and Gnome

hi all

I have a problem I haven't been able to fix which is why i come to you (obvious huh? )
after isntalling a Gentoo 2005/0 on my Vaio laptop PCG-FX501, i decided to go with Gnome so i followed the instructions on the gentoo HOW-TO Gnome

first i edited my /etc/make.conf and added
USE="-qt -kde gtk gnome"
then i emerged it with

emerge gnome xscreensaver
there's 173 files to emerge.... so it's takes a loooong time... but when it comes to the 22th which is dev-perl/XML-Parser-2.34 it stops here what it shows:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (22 of 173) dev-perl/XML-Parser-2.34 to /

.... (usual stuff after emergeing something)

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for XML::Parser::Expat
Writing Makefile for XML::Parser
==> Your Makefile has been rebuilt. <==

make: *** [Makefile] Error 1

!!! ERROR: dev-perl/XML-Parser-2.34 failed.
!!! Function perl-module_src_compile, Line 100, Exitcode 2
!!! Compilation failed
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.
