I just compiled the device-mapper into the kernel (same place in 
menuconfig as RAID, EVMS and LVM - I used the 2.4.22-ac1 kernel), did an

emerge unmerge lvm-user


emerge lvm2

Note: You will need to either set the ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" flag in 
make.conf or on the commandline just prior to emerging lvm2 since LVM2 
is masked as experimental in Gentoo.

I had metadata problems so I didn't get LVM2 running perfectly, but the 
commands are basically the same as in LVM1 so you should not need to 
change any startup-files.
