I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out http://blog.flameeyes.eu/2008/11/14/problems-and-mitigation-strategies-for-as-needed for details).
Check the attached build log.

The ebuild is tremendously broken, the SSL support is no longer compiled in but dlopened. The project moved to http://code.google.com/p/mongoose/ .
I'd say punt this package and just replace it with mongoose if some user requests that.

# QA removal, ebuild needs work, SSL support is dlopened instead of more
# favorable ways. Project dead, now called mongoose instead. removal bug: 248484
# mongoose bug: 173888
# Removed in ~60 days by treecleaners
(extra time for mongoose investigation)
