What Desktop Environment are you using? (You should give more information up-front, so as not to waste other people's effort.) In KDE it's easy: System Settings > Locale > Date & Time > Short date format.
Follow the instructions by user fturco in the Gentoo Forums thread you created with the same question. Note that if the file /etc/env.d/02locale contains the LC_ALL environment variable, that will override the LC_TIME environment variable, so remove the assignment of the LC_ALL variable if it exists.
