For xorg you need to place the following in make.conf 
VIDEO_CARDS="radeon" #Thats for the video driver 
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse" #optionally you could add evdev to test.

If you decide to use  xorg-7.1:

The ati driver patch is here for xf86-video-ati-6.6.2. 
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146706
All it does is some sanity checking.  Otherwise, the driver assumes an x86 
VESA Bios and generates useless values.  Developers are waiting on the patch 
to see if this or something else is used upstream.
