Well, I have managed to build PARI properly on a opteron running Debian,
and I don't recall having any problems. I expect to get access to the
box again sometime before the end of the year.

I wonder if your gentoo box is not configured with strange compiler
flags, since this bug normally only occur with Configure -g.

The problem you report is well-know and I will fix it soon.
for background.

It was supposed to be fixed together with the description system
but we forgot to do it.
