Yes, I use tmpfs on /vat/tmp/portage to reduce the disk i/o on my laptop.
Here is the line I use in the /etc/fstab:
none /var/tmp/portage tmpfs nr_inodes=1M,size=2G 0 0
This will allow the directory /var/tmp/portage to use at most 2GB of
memory (I have 4GB).
It is enough to compile most of the packages in portage.
