Particularly see the symlink thing in his PKGBUILD for the library. If he was a Gentoo user for more than a year - I was one for about 6 years -, he should know, that a library doesn't have to be symlinked to keep or get reverse dependencies compatible to updated libraries.
I'll just point out that the library symlink in his PKGBUILD was the right type of symlink taht almost every library has on a system.
i.e. libfoo.so.0 -> libfoo.so
So it is not what I term a "stupid" symlink.
