I have old xen kernel(2.6.21) and can’t easily upgrade to newer kernel, so I’m getting this kind of errors when trying to update packages... Example build log attached.

This is somewhat related to bug #820 (utimensat) bug.

Your linux-headers is newer than your kernel. That's not allowed, and I'm extremely wary about adding in even more hacks to support that kind of thing, since Paludis won't be the only package that breaks.

There's a patch that will let Paludis build on systems that don't have futimens at all in  http://github.com/pioto/paludis-pioto/compare/master...freebsd , but your system claims that it does have futimens.

Hmm, oh... There doesn’t seem to be that old linux-headers and installing 2.6.23 failed to

scripts/unifdef.c:209: error: conflicting types for 'getline' /usr/include/stdio.h:651: error: previous declaration of 'getline' was here make[1]: * [scripts/unifdef] Error 1

I’ll just stick with 0.42 before I can actually upgrade the kernel... In this case, I suppose this bug can be closed.
