We (Patrick and I) tried to get someone interested in an OpenBSD 
(re)port of Gentoo, but students lots interest.  Maksbotan got involved 
but we soon hit deep snags.  There were not something we couldn't 
handle, but they were time consuming.  For the hell of it, I started 
porting Gentoo to minix a few days ago when 3.2.0 came out.  Same story, 
and as soon as the issues got deep, I asked myself, do I have time for 
this?!

Then I asked, who would use this?  I'm not sure about the OpenBSD port 
but with Minix there is some possibility because Minix is in need of 
userland.  *Shrug*
