Ok, I just went through an exercise of identifying the libs needed by RRDTool 1.2.27 and checking my current versions, versus what's available, and upgraded where i could.  Here's a summary:

package zlib:
Had 1.2.3, upgraded to 1.2.3r1 (ebuild).  Latest available appears to be 1.2.3.

package libpng:
Had 1.2.8, latest available ebuild was 1.2.26-r1, but I did not upgrade due to a failed ebuild patch.  Still on 1.2.8.

package freetype:
Had 2.3.6, latest is 2.3.6.

package libxml2:
Had 2.6.19, upgraded to 2.6.31 (latest available ebuild), latest is 2.6.32

package fontconfig:
Had 2.5.0r1, latest available ebuild; downloaded source for 2.6.0 and installed to /usr/local; rrdtool 1.2.27 does not appear to use it?

package pixman:
Had 0.9.6, upgraded to 0.11.4

package cairo:
had 1.6.4, latest is 1.6.4

package glib:
had 2.16.3, latest is 2.16 (according to gtk site)

package pango:
had 1.18, upgraded to 1.20.3, latest is 1.21

Then, cleaned up my RRDtool 1.2.27 build directory and re-ran ./configure, then make && make install; testsuite still fails...

Short of a glibc issue (running 2.3.4...), I'm not sure what could be the issue...
