After doing a world update the cursor gets replaced with an "X", similar to what you'd get when you start X without having any window manager installed at all. Besides that, everything is fine.

Am I missing some ebuild? Which one? Or perhaps I should try to reemerge some particular ebuilds anyway, to see if that fixes the problem?

Perhaps someone could point me in the direction of the ebuild(s) that contain the files for the cursor in X?

I tried searching for cursor and found /usr/lib64/libXcursor.so, however, it doesn't seem that xorg nor xfce (my current window manager) depend on it.

Cursors are kept in /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11

Cursors are chosen by your window manager or desk manager or in ~/.XDefaults

Edit to add, I use cursors from the gentoo-xcursors package, and in order to get my preferred cursor in an xterm, I remove the xterm cursor that gets installed in the /usr/share/cursors/xorg-x11/gentoo-silver/cursors directory

I had a different cause for my issue but the "fix" may help you either as a "fix" or a temporary work-around until you resolve your issue. See the following thread:
