OTOH if gentoo is about choice, why not let some keen individual compile
the mandrake (or better still SuSE) X configuration tool for gentoo and
submit an ebuild. You might not use it Ciaran, but others might.

frankly I am a user of the -configure option in X, but I usually then
have to tweak the monitor settings to get a good resolution. 

Anyway I can tell that the X gentoo devs will be unlikely to provide
a gui, but cheers to anyone else who can be bothered.
