How do I get an ebuild for a version not downloaded by sync?

The problem is https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36811 which requires a reversion of zlib to 1.1.4. But the earliest version on my machine after sync is 1.2.1. How is this done? Thanks.

Hi,

Basically you can get it from the portage CVS (you can use a web browser - ViewCVS interface) and store it (along with any required files in the "files" directory) in a portage overlay.

I did it once.

I think this is the correct place: http://www.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/
