Gentoo - xfree won't install - header problem. Is there a fix?

as reported in this bug, I can't install xfree because of some header weirdness. The bug is listed as fixed, I patched my "gcc-3.2.3-r3.ebuild" with the suggested fix for the bug, but I still can't get it going. I'm still getting lots of this:

g++ -Wall -pedantic -I/usr/include/freetype2 -O3 -march=pentium4 -funroll-loops -fprefetch-loop-arrays -pipe -c ttmkfdir.cpp    -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/ttmkfdir.lo

Anyone found a solution to this? Kinda sucks to finally have a working build of gentoo & not be able to run x. (This is my 5th install due to two bad hard drives :P)
