Maybe its because its a .a and not a .la and so something different is
happening... man, just *thining* of *looking* into those am files gives me
a headache... and I think libufc.a is the only time you pull in a .a.

More-or-less. Its the more bit that the problem... gentoo builds everything
in a sandpit, and does lots of checks to make sure you're not doing
silly/stupid/dangerous things... its a very sweet way of doing things, but
when it breaks its a right pain in the arse to work out why and fix.

Its defiantly a gentoo portage/ebuild issue since the build works fine and
only fails when doing so under portage/ebuild.
