I have no experience (apart from a bad one, long time ago) with
installing a libc in a Gentoo Prefix install.  You are most probably
looking for something like Gentoo/FreeBSD, whith which I don't have much
experience either.  Please see if you can find out how they did their
work.  I'm sorry not to be able to help you more.
