So in theory /var should be mounted *before* depscan.sh or anything
runs that need /var/lib/init.d/.
I am not too sure why it breaks, as previous versions did work with
a /usr and /var on separate partitions, and nothing really changed
in that regard. Also, you would have gotten a big error if
/var/lib/init.d could not be created.
Only suggestion for now, is try to pass 'gentoo=tmpfs' as kernel
