Link against tinfo
Occurs for me as well on several boxes. Steps to reproduce:
emerge -av1 =sys-libs/readline-6.2_p4
The attached patch fixes the compilation for me. Please note that it is not sufficient to just "append-ldflags -L. -ltinfo".

LDFLAGS are not for libs.

patch to link with tinfo
Supplied patch adds -ltinfo and compiles screen-4.0.3-r8.ebuild; It should be relatively easy to create screen-4.0.3-r9.ebuild...

you need to use pkg-config to detect the libs. YOur patch will fail on system not having libtinfo
