according to this page


it isn't even being tested on the amd64 platform.  However, I didn't
have any trouble manually ebuilding an earlier version, 1.1.0, on my
 Linux 2.6.15-gentoo-r4 #2 PREEMPT Tue Feb 7 15:53:45 PST 2006 x86_64
 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

using the x86 ebuild file.  I can't test the new version until I
finish some development work, but I expect it will also build fine.

And I am using geos 2.2.1, from an unofficial ebuild I found reading
the Gentoo bugzilla logs.  Probably from the same source noted in the
original email on this thread, but I do not recall the specifics.
