yep, seen this too.  The only "solution" I could find was to
export ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="" and revert to glibc 2.3.1,
Of course, this takes some doing, as screwing with glibc on gentoo usually 

The behavior reminds me of name-mangling mismatches you might see in C++ land 
from time-to-time... it's as though the linker doesn't know what API's are 
supposed to match up.  I have not looked into what's really happening.

FWIW, I have had to kill or rebuild every "~x86" gentoo system I have built.  
The official line of gentoo is that nobody should do this.  Instead, the line 
goes, you should keep ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="" and only throw in "~x86"
when you want some particular masked ebuild.  Needless to say, I've broken 
this rule myself several times "just to see what happens" -- but it has 
always been pretty ugly.  

I wonder what happens if only glibc is upgraded, and everything else is left 
at ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="" versions?  I never debugged it because I just don't 
trust the "~x86" toolchain ... at the time I was more concerned about getting 
myself back to a working sytsem than fixing wine ... :(

IIRC the only part that would compile (and link) was ntdll (or was that 
kernel32?), and of course the "normal" unix programs in tools/.
