Unmaintainted Gentoo packages

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Find obsolete Gentoo packages that cannot be installed any more

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote operating system contains obsolete software

Description :

The remote Gentoo system contains several packages or versions
which have been marked as obsolete and have been removed from
the portage tree.
These versions are therefore unmaintained, which means that if
any security flaw is found in them, no patch will be made
available.

In addition to this, these packages might break after a library
upgrade and it will be impossible to recompile them.

Solution:

Remove or upgrade those packages.
