As long as you do not change the underlying OS, you should be fine(tm)

That means: I just did this moving from mac-osx laptop1 to mac-osx
laptop2 for a different user.
You need to modify the make.globals file (portage users...) and
usr/lib/portage/pym/portage/const_autotool.py

After that my prefix based system worked like a charm again, however
YMMV as usual.

Ramon
