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.
