In /etc/init.d/bootmisc baselayout uses sysctl with the option -q. As you can see
on http://procps.sourceforge.net/changelog.html this option was added in 3.2.2.

Steps to Reproduce:
error: Unknown parameter "-q"
usage: sysctl [-n] [-e] variable ...
sysctl [-n] [-e] [-q] -w variable=value ...
sysctl [-n] [-e] -a
sysctl [-n] [-e] [-q] -p <file> (default /etc/sysctl.conf)
sysctl [-n] [-e] -A

But I think (as a dial-in slave) Gentoo should work without emerge system or
