did you first run emerge metadata and check the world file to be sure the
standard baselayout is replaced with the vserver one in the listing? it
sounds like something got confused. i installed all my production guests
using the above method and p3 tar and didn't have that problem. maybe it is
unique to a certain tar version?

there were some start/stop issues with earlier tools on gentoo. -r4 is the
first one to work properly with their fixes for it. i just installed -r5
which seems to be working well once i figure out what i dont have configured
correctly when using depends.
