 * You can install app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-medialibs package for the 32bit
 * libraries from the media-libs/libv4l package.

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is a new install.
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.
