When I try the experiment I'll try to remember to disable any such env based workarounds that I currently have in place.

I'm currently doing libc++ related build experiments for Dimitry Andric. A successful build would end about 8 hours from now. So it will be a while before I can get to your experiment.

For the powerpc64 context I use lang/gcc49 and devel/powerpc64-xtoolchain-gcc (so devel/powerpc64-gcc which is a 5.3 variant that has file conflicts with lang/gcc5's 5.3). I use lang/gcc49 instead of lang/gcc5 because of devel/powerpc64-gcc conflicting. No gcc 4.2.1 present or built. System clang built but unused.

+		--with-local-prefix=/usr/include \

looks wrong to me. The default is not /usr/local/include but just /usr/local . Quoting :

Specify the installation directory for local include files. The default is /usr/local. Specify this option if you want the compiler to search directory dirname/include for locally installed header files instead of /usr/local/include.

So your change would generate /usr/include/include for the overall include path from what I can tell.

Do you want:

+		--with-local-prefix=/usr \
