Thanks.  I knew the PORTAGE_BINHOST and --config-root bits, but hadn't 
thought about the tree not being needed, save for the profiles.  I 
recently setup a netbook based on a Gentoo image compiled elsewhere, and 
while it's now functional, I'm still tweaking stuff, including the portage 
arrangement.   That I don't need the entire gentoo tree for emerging 
binpkgs is thus quite interesting new information at this point. =:^)

Does that happen to be documented anywhere?  I'd not seen it before.
