markus your way would not work on gentoo systems using emerge/portage
to compile sources.

it uses a sandbox. you cant just change the behaviour (ok, there is a way, 
but not form "normal" users).

it checks outs sources from repositories, unpacks, configures... everything.

can try to check out the sources manually and compile them?
