This tells me it's some super-funky binutils b0rkage going on. Try
binutils-18.104.22.168.3 and 22.214.171.124.4 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 126.96.36.199.3 acts funny on glibc (iirc), but I haven't tested
188.8.131.52.4 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.
