No you haven't, your log tells it's 1.9.5 now. You need to recompile all X
drivers when xorg-server gets a new version number, this can be done with
emerge -1a $( qlist -IC x11-drivers/), or with emerge @x11-modules-rebuild
with recent portage versions. Maybe this helps, although I think you should
have gotten explicit errors then, so it's probably already been done.
Has x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel been updated/ recompiled after xorg-server
was updated? Is "intel" in your VIDEO_CARDS variable?

This will not change a thing, hal is not used by xorg-server any more. If it
were and you wanted to make use of it, you should have set the hal USE flag
for xorg-server, so xorg-server would be compiled with hal support.
