Thank you! If I now upgrade with gcc-config x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-7.3.0 env-update && source /etc/profile emerge --ask --oneshot sys-devel/libtool must I do a world update --emptytree as when converting to the 13.0 profile. I believe not as the requirement when upgrading to 13.0 was due to the new generation of PIE output. Again, thank you. allan
