ati-drivers is incompatible with xorg-server-1.7 --> read here

to mask it, do the following
# mkdir -p /etc/portage
echo ">=x11-base/xorg-server-1.7*" >> /etc/portage/package.mask

Sometimes blocks are legitimate issues, not just annoyances to solve. Currently xorg-server-1.7* doesn't get along with the ATI drivers. See this thread.
