When you run Dolphin as root (not sure if there is a better method now, don't
follow that policy kit stuff closely enough), how do you start it?
From a user session using some run-as option or by getting a root shell and
running it from there?

Just to make sure this is intentional: you are running a system wide MySQL
daemon and want it to be used for Akonadi's database, correct?

This looks like a version mismatch of libboost and the executable.
Kind of strange on Gentoo, like emerging a different boost after building the
executable and the system not detecting it has to recompile all dependencies
I think the rest are consequences of the starter executable failing to start
due to this linker error.

Could be related, but since the akonadictl executable cannot be started due to
the symbol mismatch, I would be surprised if it still managed to start any
Akonadi process :)
