Steam used to work on my system, now it doesn't.

Any ideas on what is the problem, based on the output shown below?

Thanks in advance.

Code:
$ steam

try enabling STEAM_RUNTIME by passing it on the command line
Code:
STEAM_RUNTIME=1 steam

and see if that helps.

Cool, that worked.

Found the writeup in the wiki :)

So it appears the Steam ebuilds are missing some library somewhere.
