Attached is a patch that is in official upstream master repository. It's not in the 16.08 branch so I'm guessing it will not be released in a point release. This is the official fix to this bug:

Patching libvncserver with that patch may cause future incompatibilities with the next release of krfb; the above mentioned bug report can thus be closed. I have tested this with gcc 6.2.0-r1 recompiling both libvncserver and krfb.

Ebuild I used to test the patch.

I found out the hard way that kde apps don't use user patches in /etc/portage/patches even though it's EAPI 6. Bug or on purpose?
Comment 2 Jonathan Scruggs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-10-29 12:21:12 UTC
Correction. I just noticed that libvncserver upstream has that other patch in the above bug report in their master branch:

This will be interesting to see how these two programs interact with each other as they both did different fixes.

Sorry, wrong bug.
Comment 5 Mike Lothian 2016-11-30 14:22:28 UTC
This fix is also needed for 16.08.3
Comment 6 devsk 2016-12-13 07:02:04 UTC
Is this going to be added to 16.08.3 version?
Comment 7 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2016-12-13 10:01:30 UTC
I suspect rather than that, Applications release 16.12 should arrive in a few days.
