Both versions of virtualbox video driver for xf86 fail with the same error
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use GCC-4.3 and glibc-2.7
** There are known problems with gcc version 4.3 when compiling the recompiler
** stuff. You need to specify a compatibility compiler with version < 4.3. Look
** for a package compat-gcc-34 on Fedora systems or something similar on other
** distributions and call configure with parameter --with-gcc-compat=gcc34.
Please post your `emerge --info' in a comment and attach the full build log to this bug report.

I am reopening this bug as I have the same problem.
emerge --info is attached
As explained before i am having the same issue with all xf86-input-virtualbox
Please let me know if you need more information
This is a known problem with the upstream project, hence the nice informative error message displayed. They are working on gcc 4.3 support, but until it is finished how about just using a stable gcc 4.2 toolchain? The upgrade to gcc 4.3 breaks a fair amount of existing code (see gcc 4.3 porting, bug 198121 ...) so it is handy to have a gcc 4.2 toolchain available that you can switch to for packages where maintainers and upstream projects are still working on gcc 4.3 support.

as said in comment #4 by wormo this is a known issue,
upstream doesn't support gcc-4.3 at this time, so there is
no known solution to this issue.
On a side note, on Dec 17, 2008 virtualbox 2.1.0
was released, gcc-4.3.x is *still not supported* but i was
able to build it (bug #251335 comment #34).
You can try this release, ebuilds are currently on jokey's overlay
Upstream feature, thanks for the report though
