This is not a bug, this is a feature. :-)

In all seriousness, bootstrap.sh uses very specific settings for package 
versions. These are hardcoded in /usr/portage/profiles/<your profile 
version>/packages. You can change these manually before running 
bootstrap if you want. make.conf isn't used for bootstrap (it's actually 
moved to make.conf.build during bootstrap and moved back afterwards).

This is done for stability reasons - the versions used are known-good 
versions.
