E17 is not officially supported, but, as pointed out above, there is an article in the Gentoo Wiki (works quite well, used it just yesterday). And in "Desktop Environments" there's the "E17 is coming" thread, where you can post your questions.
For me it compiled without any hassle on AMD64 arch and previously on x86 as well, so just try out the article in the Gentoo Wiki.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads.
Please refer to the resources given above for help with E17.
