Can someone tell me why when i start openvpn it starts up net.eth0 instead of using the already existing net.ppp0 connection?

That's because most services just depend on "net" and "net" is only up when all services which provide net are up.
solution:
for baselayout-1: open /etc/conf.d/rc and change RC_NET_STRICT_CHECKING to "NO"
for baselayout-2: open /etc/rc.conf and change rc_depend_strict to "NO"

then anyone network service should be enough

found it at http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Wireless/Configuration#Net_services_like_Apache_don.27t_start_if_both_wlan0_and_eth0_aren.27t_started
