    Or rather, it shouldn't.

    valgrind _compilation_ was broken by 3.0:
    11 *valgrind-3.6.1-r1 (09 Jun 2011)
    12
    13 09 Jun 2011; Anthony G. Basile <blueness@gentoo.org>
    14 +valgrind-3.6.1-r1.ebuild, +files/valgrind-3.6.1-linux-3.patch:

    case "${kernel}" in
    - 2.6.*)
    + 2.6.*|3.*)
    AC_MSG_RESULT([2.6 family (${kernel})])
