I ran into the same problem.  I think that you need to have QT built 
with support for MySQL, which is done by emerging QT _after_ you emerge 
MySQL.  In other words, MySQL needs to be installed first.  (I'm not 
sure about the USE flags.)  I think I had a problem with the 
qt-3.1.0_pre package, but I'm running okay with qt-3.0.5-r2.ebuild.

It would also be interesting to see what can be done with the 
app-admin/livecd package.  (Homepage: 
http://cdimages.telemetrybox.org/gentoo/    Description: Generate a 
bootable Gentoo live CD. With ability to deploy Gentoo easily. Includes 
lilo boot time pengiun animation.)
