I will try this and report back. Right now I'm actually re-installing my 
entire Gentoo system, so it will be a few days before I will have 
anything to report.

Thanks to you and Roman for your hard work on this.

Not yet. I need to re-try the operation and see if I get the same error. 
Part of my problem might have been that I was working on a weird 
Sabayon/Gentoo hybrid, which I imagine could have led to some version 
conflicts. That's why I'm re-installing -- so I'll be on a known, 
all-Gentoo platform.
