Random build failures (mostly segmentation faults/internal compiler errors) on k8 subarch

      Trying to create a working KDE plasma 5 funtoo linux install with the k8 subarch, I got stuck with two issues:

      1. compiling would start to hang (fixed? by overriding the default profile and removing -pipe from CFLAGS)

      2. compiling would sometimes create segmentation faults in python and gcc while emerging world. However, running the same emerge command again allows the package to compile normally.

      Will try to investigate the reason for the odd behavior, it might be hardware specific.
      Or I might have muddled up the configuration. Will try to build the system in a VM
      to test.

      Since this is a possible build time issue, might as well document it.
