I too am using Gentoo, on a dual Athlon MP, and Blender works fine (until I run
into the "rendering with ATI Radeon causes a crash" bug, but that is a DRI issue
with xfree for which a patch at bugs.xfree.org exists [and which I haven't yet
had a chance to apply to xfree 4.3]).  

As another datapoint, I compile with CFLAGS="-march=athlon-mp -O3 -pipe
-fomit-frame-pointer".  Perhaps the core dumps being experienced by others
relate to using an older version of gcc?
