This is an issue with the version linux-headers not including

Creating an empty asm/page.h (in /usr/include) would get past this,
but could cause other issues.

Does the latest version of linux-headers for gentoo put this back or
is it gone for good? Checking the latest kernel here (not gentoo, I
don't use that) and it seems be getting installed as part of make
headers_install - so it looks like it's back. So you might want to
try the latest gentoo version of linux-headers before doing anything

If you update your host to the latest version and it still has
problems then put a bug in the OE bug tracker and I can look at
fixing this. Perl is only including it in order to get the definition
of getpagesize which has been defined in unistd.h for a long time
now, so just removing that include for perl should (in theory) work
without any issues (unless you had a really old system?)
