Bit cryptic title, but the place is too short to put more. The problem I have is that I want to use an older application that doesn't work (hardly compiles) with the current versions of libraries in portage (mostly libpng). So I'd like to seek all the older libs together, put them in a place and then compile a version of the app with static dependencies. (and hope it runs)

The problem is I have no clue how to do this. My guess is that it maybe would be easier to do this in a virtual machine. I don't want to mess up my running setup. There is place enough on the hard disc to make a separate partition for it.
