Have you tried unmerging modutils, then emerging an older version?

maybe someone else who is on an i686 and is up to date with all the libs as of a couple days ago can send me their:
/sbin/rmmod, /sbin/modprobe, /sbin/lsmod, /sbin/ksyms, /sbin/kallsyms, and /sbin/insmod

Think that would work?

Oh and so you know the only actual file is insmod, the rest are symlinks to insmod.
