Better.

Now, could you please explain why this is needed?
I.e., why does gentoo need this change while (apparently)
everybody else Unix-like doesn't.

Presumably something special is going on either with
the TARGET thing or the export thing, but _what_?

(I'm not trying to be rude here; patches must IMO
be accompanied by technical explanations, otherwise
we lose track of why things are done in certain
ways.)
