Well, I blew that one.  I decided to start over just in case I had
missed something.  Unfortunately, I failed to umount portage before I
did rm -rf on the staging area.  Now, I do not have /usr/portage.  Some
days are like that. :-(

Does anyone know if it is possible to recover just portage without
starting all over?

I wrote the how-to.  I haven't built a system in several weeks, so
portage has changed a bit (and ebuilds).  I plan on updating the how-to
in a week or two, if I discover new problems (looks like there are
some).
