This is what I have on my system:
localhost liviu # locate


However, the funny thing is that "/usr/lib/" belongs to no package, while the other belongs to media-libs/mesa. localhost liviu # equery b /usr/lib/ [ Searching for file(s) /usr/lib/ in *... ]

localhost liviu # equery b /usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/ [ Searching for file(s) /usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/ in *... ] media-libs/mesa-7.0.2 (/usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/ ->

localhost liviu # eix media-libs/mesa
[I] media-libs/mesa

     Available versions:  6.5.2-r1 (~)7.0.2
