You can't expect $D to be available in depend phase/source time, so ED
will be wrong. I think especially Paludis will be strict in this, I was
told Portage just exports it, but that's luck.
See PMS, page 63. ROOT is actually also a problem since it is defined
only to be available in pkg_*. That leaves us with EPREFIX.
