Simplest is probably using import command if you have imagemagick installed.

I use x11-apps/xwd as described here.

As I mention there, it's probably the first thing I managed to find that can do exactly what I want...
For the longest time I was puzzled as to how there can not be something that does what I want. —_—

Was incredibly satisfied with xwd... and still am...

Yes...
