Thanks for your response.
There were quite some outdated ebuilds and abandoned dependencies amongst
the involved packages.
However there were some mentionable, like vixie-cron or portmap.
Fortunately my gcc-config is correct. The symptoms popped up probably
because I don't recompile system or world. I let the system roll and rely
on revdep-rebuild for consistency.
Probably the latest glibc stopped exporting some obsolete symbols.
Actually I'm happy, that it pointed on some elderly packages of my systems
older than 5 years now. Constantly hardened!
