output of emerge -pqv '=x11-drivers/xf86-video-virtualbox-5.0.32::gentoo'

[ebuild  N    ] x11-drivers/xf86-video-virtualbox-5.0.32  USE="dri" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7" 
[ebuild  N    ] app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-5.0.32  USE="X"
Comment 3 Valmor de Almeida 2017-02-07 03:35:28 UTC
I have also tried all other ebuild versions either lower versions than 5.0.32 and higher (unstable) versions. All of them have the same problem. I also removed xorg from the system and re emerged everything and the problem persists.
Therefore I am beginning to think there is some other problem since at least one ebuild should work.
Comment 4 Valmor de Almeida 2017-02-07 04:37:21 UTC
Not sure whether this additional information will help but the virtualbox package:  virtualbox-guest-additions-5.0.32 also does not compile and it has a similar compilation error as the video driver.
Comment 5 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2017-02-09 19:28:20 UTC
This is unfortunately an issue with kernel-4.9

According to virtualbox upstream this will need some time to get fixed.
