Howdy,
just a quick note to say that I found an issue which someone may need an answer to.
having just installed fresh and found that compiz is in last rites.
the compiz plugin dbus is not autobuilt in the ebuilds...
this is evident from the nicely vague error " Couldn't load plugin 'dbus' "

you can get around this though by

# copy distfile somewhere safe
mkdir ~/Desktop/compizdbus
cd ~/Desktop/compizdbus
cp /usr/portage/distfiles/compiz-0.8.6.tar.bz2 ./

# extract tarball
tar xvjf comp*
cd compiz-0.8.6

# manually build here
./configure
make

# copy the libdbus plugin to where it needs to be
cp plugins/.lib/libdbus* /usr/lib/compiz/


hope this helps somebody else !
