FWIW, I'm experiencing the same problem after upgrading xorg-server to 1.12.2.

The backtrace in the Xorg.0.log is next to identical to the one of the original poster.
I tried all the suggestions that has been posted so far, to no avail, still segfaults.

My chipset is an onboard AMD880G (aka Radeon 4250) using open source drivers
on a 64bit system. Would be happy to post more details if it's useful to someone.

[edit]
Whoops, sorry, everyone here IS using the open source drivers. I got confused between ati-drivers and xf8-6video-ati, cos my VIDEO_CARDS said neither ("fglrx" or "radeon", of course).
[/edit]

People seem to have missed the elog message from ati-drivers-12.6-beta.
Code:
Please note that this driver supports only graphic cards based on
Evergreen chipset and newer.
This represent the AMD Radeon HD 5400+ series at this moment.

If your card is older then use x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati
For migration informations please reffer to:
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/x/x11/ati-migration-guide.xml

I missed it too (my box has HD3200 embedded graphics).

Cures are either to stay at 12.4 (which required you to back-level xorg-server et al), or to move to the radeon driver. The radeon driver works for me, though it seems to slow flightgear somewhat.

Tried the x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-9999 layover, same result.

Downgrading to xorg-server-1.11 seems more and more like the only option.

I'm experiencing the same problem trying to re-emerge Xorg driver:
emerge -1av $(qlist -IC x11-drivers)

qlist gives me "Segmentation fault"

I'm using in make.conf: VIDEO_CARDS="vga vesa fbdev"

Joseph ... I think thats a seperate issue, if qlist segfaults it due to some runtime dependency or what-have-you being broken/missing. Check the linking ...

Code:
% ldd /usr/bin/qlist
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xb77c5000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb7651000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb77c6000)

linux-gate.so is a a virtual DSO (provided by the kernel) and the other two belong to glibc.

HTH & best ...

Same error here, I tried all the solutions posted here but to successfully start X I had to downgrade both xorg-server and xf86-video-ati masking

>x11-base/xorg-server-1.11.4-r1
>x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.14.3

Perhaps we should report this as a bug. What do you all think?

I think it has something to do with new: portage-utils-0.10
I masked it and went back portage-utils-0.8 and it worked for me.
