This should do it fix that error.
# eselect profile list
[1] something 2006
[2] something 2007
etc
etc
# eselect profile set 5

5 being 2007 desktop

then
# eselect profile list
[5] something 2007 desktop *

:D
This should do set it the 2007 desktop profile to active / on. Then try the emerge portage again.
Eselect is very nice and can even set the kernel type and other stuff same as above.

If you get a error of /etc/locales.build = lazy not removed yet = you can delete this file and then check /etc/locales.gen and make sure it has the language you want in there.

Hope this helps.

Also, I saw some posts elsewhere that the make.conf file isn't consistantly getting installed for 3.4f.

Check your /etc directory, and make sure you have a good make.conf file. If not, you can boot the live cd, and use the make.conf file in the /etc directory there.

Update Installer should fix the make.conf issue
