virtual/opengl does not install anything.

For some reason, it thinks you have eselect-opengl installed, but it
can't find its file. You can set up the symlinks by hand. But your
system will never build nicely until you get eselect-opengl installed
properly, because many ebuilds will try to use it.

You did 'emerge eselect-opengl' successfully? It has three files:
polylepis ~ # qlist eselect-opengl
(qlist is part of portage-utils --- emerge it please, if you have not
yet, then try the command I show above.)
The module is this one:
eselect opengl list
should show you which implementations of opengl you have installed
(for you, xorg-x11).
Now, you can force a build of eselect-opengl like this:
(one command line)
At that point, those 3 files will be installed in
will install them, or you can copy them to where they belong by hand.
But I see no way you can get a clean install from
and not be able to use it.
