If it doesn't build, try installing libtool. If that doesn't work then try installing the gentoo equivalents of the following Debian packages (from debian/control, in alphabetical order):
Build-Depends: automake1.7, debhelper (>= 4.0.0), gettext, intltool, libart-2.0-dev (>= 2.3.10), libatk1.0-dev, libfreetype6-dev, libgc-dev, libglib2.0-dev, libgtk2.0-dev (>= 2.0.6-1), libgtkmm-2.4-dev, libpango1.0-dev, libpng12-dev, libpopt-dev, libsigc++-2.0-dev, libtool, libxft2-dev, libxml-parser-perl, libxml2-dev (>= 2-2.4.24), pkg-config, xlibs-dev, zlib1g-dev
To get the 2.4 version of gtkmm:
emerge sync ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge gtkmm
Gentoo CVS Ebuild ready !
This afternoon I decided to make an ebuild for the CVS of inkscape for gentoo users !
To use it:
- <a href="http://www.inkscape.org/doc/inkscape-1.0.ebuild">Download it</a> (pretty obvious isn't it ? :)
- Copy the file into /usr/portage/media-gfx/inkscape/
- run the command 'emerge inkscape' in root
- Drink a coffee or two
- Enjoy !
You can improve it and send me back the modifications and I'll update the file.
I need feedback !

-- Annotation: You need an installed gtkmm-2.2 (2.4 does not work currently), Dominic
Note that the Gentoo packagename for the Boehm garbage collector Inkscape requires is boehm-gc. Unfortunately, this was set up without --enable-cplusplus. You can manually get it to work, though: See http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/faq.xml#configure and follow the steps. After installing it this way, I also had to do `chmod a+rx /usr/include/gc` so Inkscape's ./configure will find the headers
Also, gentoo includes libsigc++ 2.0.1, but Inkscape requires 2.0.3, so that has to be manually installed.
