Ah, I read portage(5) now and adding a virtual to package.provided is
indeed explicitly prohibited.
I removed it, but some further changes might be required for prefix
(i.e. version number >= 4.1 in package.provided to satisfy the virtual),
and I'll indeed hold back further changes in that area,
and preferably just let you do any necessary fixes for prefix.
