FWIW, pan builds just fine here on gentoo/~amd64, with gmime-2.6.pc.  Of 
course on gentoo/amd64, for historical reasons (gentoo developed its 
amd64 support before a standard multilib location was defined) lib is 
generally a symlink to lib64, with people running multilib (I'm 64-bit-
only, here) having a lib32 for their 32-bit libs.  So the lib -> lib64 
symlink may help.

But you're probably missing some --with-lib-path=/usr/lib64 or some such 
parameter, fed to configure or the like.  But that's a bit beyond my 
level so I don't really have specific instructions for you, unfortunately.

FWIW, I remember all the issues I used to have with split -dev(el) 
packages, dependency hell, etc, trying to either find updated rpms oon 
rpmfind or build from source back on Mandrake (this was ~2002-2004, I 
switched to gentoo in 2004), and I'm SOOOO glad I run a from-source distro 
like gentoo now, where most of that sort of stuff "just works".  So I can 
certainly sympathize with your plight, but there /is/ a way out, gentoo, 
if you want to take that step.  (FWIW, gentoo is sort of half way between 
lfs, Linux from scratch, and a normal binary distro.  And arch linux is 
sort of half way between gentoo and a binary distro.  So there's a line, 
binary distro, arch, gentoo, lfs, and a lot of former gentooers AND 
former standard binary distro users end up on arch.  But for me, gentoo's 
about as perfect a match as ever appears in reality, so that's where I've 
stayed since I discovered it.)
