Kevin Pyle submitted the attached patch to our Gentoo bugzilla which fixes the
two mentioned issues. Quote:

> This was caused by a very strange invocation of gcc when trying to build a
> library.  The rule passed "-Wl,-soX11.so".  This was parsed as the linker
> option -s, to strip the file, and the linker option -o, to name the file
> X11.so.  This rule also ignored user $LDFLAGS.  I will attach a patch to fix
> both issues.
> 
> This whole area should be revisited and reworked to use libtool, but that is
> beyond the scope of this bug.
