This may help:

root at smoker / # equery list k3b
[ Searching for package 'k3b' in all categories among: ]
 * installed packages
[I--] [ ~] app-cdr/k3b-1.0.5-r1 (0)
root at smoker / # equery list hal
[ Searching for package 'hal' in all categories among: ]
 * installed packages
[I--] [  ] app-misc/hal-info-20070618 (0)
[I--] [  ] sys-apps/hal- (0)
root at smoker / #

That's my versions of k3b and hal.  It does not verify if it is set to 
eject but does if it is set not to eject.  That is the status with these 
versions anyway.  May want to check what versions you have available.
