This suggests that you might have two versions of the LaTeX  
configuration (in particular, language.dat) on your system, perhaps a  
"system-wide" copy and a "personal" copy, and xetex is finding  
different ones depending where it is installed, or perhaps depending  
which user runs it (root or your normal non-root username, for example).

Does your Gentoo TeX system include both texconfig and texconfig-sys?  
If so, the first is for modifying a personal configuration, and the  
second is for system-wide configuration, and you'll probably find  
they are set up differently, with Hungarian and Serbian enabled in  
one and disabled in the other.
