I'm really sorry for that Danny, it's my mistake. Portage is so 
incredibly powerfull I thought fail2ban was in it. ;)
In fact I didn't remember that it is in my overlay as Chris mentionned. 
So what you have to do is:

- create a local overlay: /usr/local/portage and then net-firewall/fail2ban
- declare this overlay in you make.conf
- copy fail2ban-0.5.4.ebuild (see below) into 
- create an new directory under fail2ban called 'files'
- copy fail2ban-0.5.4.tar.bz2 from sourceforge into this new directory
- run "ebuild fail2ban-0.5.4.ebuild digest"
And then simply emerge fail2ban.

Here is the ebuild:

# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2

DESCRIPTION="Bans IP that make too many password failures"
KEYWORDS="~x86 ~amd64"

src_install() {
        # Use python setup
        python install --root=${D} || die

        # Use fail2ban.conf.default as default config file
        insinto /etc
        newins config/fail2ban.conf.default fail2ban.conf
        # Install initd scripts
        exeinto /etc/init.d
        newexe config/gentoo-initd fail2ban
        insinto /etc/conf.d
        newins config/gentoo-confd fail2ban
        # Doc
        doman man/*.[0-9]

pkg_postinst() {
        # The user must edit the config file
        echo ""
        einfo "Please edit /etc/fail2ban.conf with parameters"
        einfo "which correspond to your system."
        echo ""
