Question Gentoo 2004.3 major issues with video libraries

I don't know if this is a bug, or what... I've been using Gentoo for a while now, and I'm in the process of putting it on a new computer. I'm using Gentoo 2004.3, and I built from a stage2 tarball.

The problem is that I can't seem to compile anything related to video or multimedia for a whole variety of reasons, all of them strange compile errors. For this question, I'm most concerned about why I can't seem to emerge Mplayer.

Here is the build error:

gcc -shared .libs/libmp4_la-libmp4.o .libs/libmp4_la-mp4_utils.o .libs/libmp4_la-aac_utils.o -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/var/tmp/portage/faad2-2.0-r3/work/faad2/libfaad/.libs -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/var/tmp/portage/faad2-2.0-r3/work/faad2/common/mp4v2/.libs -L/usr/i686-pc-linux-gnu/lib -L/usr/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin -L/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3.4 -L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ -ldl -lXi -lXext -lX11 -lm -lpthread -lstdc++ ../../../libfaad/.libs/ ../../../common/mp4v2/.libs/ -march=pentium3 -Wl,-soname -Wl, -o .libs/

!!! ERROR: media-libs/faad2-2.0-r3 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 70, Exitcode 2
!!! (no error message)
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

I've built this package several times, with different USE flags, with no luck. This error occurs while building faad2-2.0-r3, which is mplayer's sole dependency. I also get strange errors while emerging k3b, and a variety of games that seem to rely on some of these media libraries.

I'm going to try binary packages next, but I don't think it's going to help. Oh, and I've rebuilt gtk+ several times, too, just in case there really was something wrong with libgtk.

Any help would be appreciated.
