Ok, everything worked after following the guide:
    http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/x/x11/libxcb-1.4-upgrade-guide.xml
but using paludis and reconcilio instead.

After running the script
    /usr/portage/x11-libs/libxcb/files/xcb-rebuilder.sh
I still got some problems with xcb, for example when compiling gmpc i
got the following errors:
    /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0: undefined reference to `_xcb_unlock_io'
    /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0: undefined reference to `_xcb_lock_io

So I rebuilt the subset of potentially broken packages. As Ian suggested, I ran:
    PKGS=`inquisitio --compact -r installed  x11-proto/ x11-libs/libxcb
    x11-libs/libX11 x11-libs/libXext \
          x11-libs/libX x11-libs/xcb-util x11-libs/cairo \
          x11-libs/pango x11-libs/gtk+ \
          x11-libs/qt-gui | sed -e '/S.*/ d' -e 's/* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/'`
    paludis -i1p $PKGS

And finally
   reconcilio --library libxcb-xlib.so.0

I'll write to the page maintainer to suggest  him to include these
steps for paludis users.

Thanks a lot for your help.
