I want to use multiple pgp key servers with the sks key server group witch imply gnupg-curl installation for the hkps protocol.

But I didn’t find gnupg-curl as an ebuild in Portage or, at least, as a USE flag of app-crypt/gnupg.

So what is the best solution? Using an overlay or compile it by myself?

There is no equivalent. gnupg-curl is only relevant to the old, 1.x branch of GnuPG, and is irrelevant for GPG 2.0 (stable, default on gentoo) and 2.1 (modern). You can use multiple keyservers without any extra effort.
