OpenOffice buttons display as black

That pretty much describes my problem. I'm using a statically compiled package from Gentoo's portage. Not sure where they fetched it from. Here is a screenshot.

Take a look at this thread on the Gentoo forums: . Here's the solution from the thread that worked for me:
1. start the emerge of xorg-x11
2. stop emerge after the patches are entpacked and before thay are applied with ctrl-z
3. go to /var/tmp/portage/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r2/work/patche
4. remove the patch with number 9914
5. lets work emerge continue with command "fg"
6. thats all. this patch will be not applied.
