The problem has been solved on the Gentoo bug tracker:

It was a configuration issue.  Including the console device
for the CONSOLE option in login.defs causes the login program
to fail:

CONSOLE console:tty1:tty2:tty3:tty4

But shouldn't this still be considered a bug?  The previous
versions of login did not have trouble when reading the
same login.defs configuration file.
