I had the same problem recently. It seems to have to do with the fact
that there was a discussion among gentoo developers on what should
actually "provide" the net service. Apparently, net.lo is not enough
anylonger, or whatever. I don't know the details.

Addingrc_provide="net" to /etc/rc.conf does at least help, I don't know
if that is the "correct" solution, but as net usually is present in any
case without having to start /etc/init.d/net.ethX in a container, I
think it should be OK.
