Unhappy Solution to Quick Fix

I'm running gentoo 2005.0 amd64 and had just synced portage and was updating a bunch of programs one of which was gcc (3.4.3 -> 3.4.4) afterwerds my entire system pretty much fell apart with the error "could not locate " or something along those lines what I eventually rediscovered was that when gcc 3.4.4 was installed and 3.4.3 was removed a couple directory changes were made and some files moved elsewhere resulting in libraries being missing. I managed to solve this through a fair amount of linking and file copying but I consider this to be a quick dirty fix which I happen to dislkie very much so does anybody know what the proper solution here would be?
