The last ideas for OSX were to have some propagation tools from prefix to host OS. This is a bit scary, but would mean useradd actions just get forwarded. This requires root privileges of course. The portage people seem to work on something to keep the administration of users added by Portage, and keep that administration synchronised with the real password backend. This initiative is very nice for prefix of course, as it would probably allow us to just plug on that administration...
