We are working on pkgcore to support prefix installs. Currently, there are several pkgs that are using the prefix inter-revision versioning.
They cause pkgcore to fail with:
!!! Invalid db entry: /home/pasc2/gentoo/var/db/pkg/sys-libs/gdbm-1.8.3-r04.1
as this inter-revision versioning is being done away with, please version bump this pkg to not have this.
I think you misunderstood the reason why it's there.

I told him to file bugs for gdbm and binutils-config. They just need a sync.
grmbl, that's not what the subject + message suggests at all
