So, after doing the build and test on SUSE 11.1 AMD-64 KDE (which worked perfectly!), I thought that maybe I could substitute SUSE's libuClibc++ for the one in Sabayon. Big surprise -- SUSE does not include this lib. A check of the kismet config.log confirmed that it looked for the lib and did not find it, so it linked around it and built anyway.

The only reason I had had libuClibc++ in my Sabayon system was that emerge picked it up when I installed the Sabayon stock kismet binary, or so it would appear. It does not come in by default. To prove this, I wiped the box (again!) and installed Sab 4.2, and then immediately loaded the kismet source tarball and ran a fresh build. Config had no complaints, and the linker commands showed no mention of libuClibc++; rather they had libstdc++, which is OK.

And the resulting kismet binary works. :-P

So I am now going to report this back to Sabayon. I did not see any other apps with a dependence on this library -- only kismet, which apparently links and runs just fine without it.
