Extracting the tarball of glibc might not be sufficient if you have
the other (the broken one) still on your filesystem cause portage
thinks you're still using it. It would be a good idea to extract the
tarball to have a working system and then reextracting it but trough
portage (i think it is emerge -k glibc if i remember but check man
emerge cause i'm not sure). I think the source of this problem is that
env-update (which is invoked after every package merging) create
symlinks pointing to your broken glibc.
