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)
