1. gentoolkit doesn't build anything.  You said 'gentookit' which I
    am taking as a typographical error?  Anyway, you are doing
    'emerge dialog' here, I think, which is a gentoolkit dependency
    so that all makes sense.

2. More interesting.  To get -lncursesw, you have to build
    ncurses USEing unicode:
    USE='unicode' emerge ncurses

    And dialog does look for -lncursesw IF you USE='unicode' emerge dialog

    You should be able to USE=unicode emerge ncurses
    and fix the problem.  (Or add unicode to the USE list in make.conf)
