For some reason, it thinks you have eselect-opengl installed, but it
can't find its file.  You can set up the symlinks by hand.  But your
system will never build nicely until you get eselect-opengl installed
properly, because many ebuilds will try to use it.

You did 'emerge eselect-opengl'  successfully?  It has three files:
polylepis ~ # qlist eselect-opengl
/usr/share/eselect/modules/opengl.eselect
/usr/lib/opengl/global/include/glext.h
/usr/lib/opengl/global/include/glxext.h

(qlist is part of portage-utils --- emerge it please, if you have not
yet, then try the command I show above.)

The module is this one:
/usr/share/eselect/modules/opengl.eselect

And 
eselect opengl list
should show you which implementations of opengl you have installed
(for you, xorg-x11).

Now, you can force a build of eselect-opengl like this:
ebuild /usr/portage/app-admin/eselect-opengl/eselect-opengl-1.0.5.ebuild
install
(one command line)
At that point, those 3 files will be installed in
/var/tmp/portage/app-admin/eselect-opengl-1.0.5/image
Then, either
ebuild /usr/portage/app-admin/eselect-opengl/eselect-opengl-1.0.5.ebuild
qmerge
will install them, or you can copy them to where they belong by hand.

But I see no way you can get a clean install from
emerge eselect-opengl
and not be able to use it.
