So in theory /var should be mounted *before* or anything runs that need /var/lib/init.d/. I am not too sure why it breaks, as previous versions did work with a /usr and /var on separate partitions, and nothing really changed in that regard. Also, you would have gotten a big error if /var/lib/init.d could not be created. Only suggestion for now, is try to pass 'gentoo=tmpfs' as kernel parameter.
