This tells me it's some super-funky binutils b0rkage going on.  Try 
binutils-2.16.91.0.3 and 2.16.91.0.4 if you can (they're not keyworded, so 
you'll have to employ an overlay or the files in /etc/portage to unmask them). 
I know that 2.16.91.0.3 acts funny on glibc (iirc), but I haven't tested 
2.16.91.0.4 on anything.

That all said, looks like a binutils thing, which are usually tricky to track 
down.  This will probably mean that emacs will remain unkeyworded for mips until 
the bug is ever found and nailed.
