>From your attached log files (I've attached them again for the benefit
of the gnulib folks) this looks like a test failure in the gnulib test
code (in tesk-mkdir.h line 40):

38  errno = 0;
39  ASSERT (func ("", 0700) == -1);
40  ASSERT (errno == ENOENT);

I'm not sure from your bug report precisely what version you are using
(there is no -r1 suffix on any existing findutils release, so I assume
something has changed), but it looks like mkdirat() [or perhaps
gnulib's replacement for it] is failing on "" with some other error
than ENOENT.

Your build log begins with some error messages from the shell about
the current directory.   Are the permissions on that directory such
that the build user has access?   This can especially be a problem if
your system uses "su" or similar to switch users during the build
process.  Check the permissions on, and ownership of,
/var/tmp/portage/sys-apps/findutils-4.5.10-r1/work and its parent

Can you reproduce the problem if you build the official source release
of findutils 4.5.10 (from ftp://alpha.gnu.org) and run "make check"?
If not, this is likely a problem with your build environment or with
whatever patches are indicated by the "-r1" suffix.
