As sci-geosciences/liblas is a dead project (no development is planned), it should be phased out. Starting with GRASS release 8.0.0 liblas is replaced with PDAL (still not for 100% of functionality yet).
Reproducible: Didn't try
PDAL version 1.7.1 is the minimum required although I would suggest to go with >=2.0
GRASS <8.0.2 wasn't compatible with PDAL >=2.4.0.
No PRs or testing as I have moved away from Gentoo for some time already.
Thanks for the report! Sorry to hear though.
I will add the pdal USE-flag currently used by sci-geosciences/qgis to build sci-geosciences/grass against sci-libs/pdal.
As long as sci-geosciences/liblas is supported by Grass and kept in the portage repo, I would like to keep this dependency. But if either is dropped, we will remove it from the ebuild.
Unfortunately we have to drop the ppc keyword, since sci-libs/pdal is only available for amd64 and x86.

That's fine as long as liblas compiles and runs. Other distros have already dropped liblas from their repos and thus PDAL is the only way forward. At the moment there are no plans to remove liblas support from GRASS but it shouldn't be an argument if keeping liblas in portage starts to become a problem.
