iwlwifi problems

Hi there.I'm using gentoo.I want to get wireless working using iwlwifi.The problem is that when i do:
$emerge -pv iwl3945-ucode
i get this output from portage:

I don't have much experience with portage, something on the lines of like 2 days.

[blocks B ] sys-apps/mktemp (is blocking sys-apps/coreutils-6.10-r2)
[blocks B ] >=sys-apps/coreutils-6.10 (is blocking sys-apps/mktemp-1.5)
[blocks B ] <sys-apps/util-linux-2.13 (is blocking sys-apps/coreutils-6.10-r2)
Indicates that something is wrong with your dependencies.
sounds like sys-apps/util-linux-2.13 needs to be upgraded,
then you should....

I think install iwlwifi again and hopefully the other stuff should upgrade by itself....
