The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-06
(LessTif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm)
Multiple vulnerabilities, including buffer overflows, out of
bounds memory access and directory traversals, have been discovered in
libXpm, which is shipped as a part of the X Window System. LessTif, an
application that includes libXpm, suffers from the same issues.
A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use
of the LessTif toolkit, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All LessTif users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=x11-libs/lesstif-0.94.0'
