Unhappy Gentoo Linux- Problems with emerge --sync

After a recent 'emerge sync', my ability to emerge anything else is hampered by the following message:

!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the /etc/make.profile symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?

I am unfamiliar with working with these dir's and have no idea about symlink. I can see now that the command i should have typed is 'emerge --sync' and not 'emerge sync'. I am working with a DSL connection. Can anyone help.

P.S. the emerge command in gentoo is basically wget...
