These errors occur if you try to build X with the elfloader, but also build the modules PIC (Position Independent Code) - the relocation types you mentioned are relevant to PIC, but the elfloader doesn't understand PIC objects.  However I don't know how you've ended up with them since you have 'dlloader' in your use flags - that causes X to avoid the elfloader completely, and use the system's standard shared library loader instead.

It's not bitmap-fonts that causes the problem, btw - it just happens that it's the first module loaded by X, so that's the first time the error occurs. If you remove bitmap-fonts, it'll just fall over on the next module.

What do you get when you do:

emerge -pv x11-base/xorg-x11

and what is the output of 'emerge --info'?
