Sorry no docs but knowing your space constraints
Or just export what you want to mask via the INSTALL_MASK= env var.
emerge -b busybox uclibc
emerge -B baselayout-lite
emerge -KO uclibc busybox baselayout-lite
# let busybox set up it's symlinks.
mount --bind /proc /dev/shm/ROOT/proc
chroot /dev/shm/ROOT/ /bin/sh --login
busybox --install -s
# these three pkgs should be your base for everything else you need
