Thanks for looking through/applying the patches!

Which repository do you use ?
There've been discussions on the list where to host the repository - did
I miss something ?

Well, I do not use the bootstrap-script from the tree, but keep using my
toolsbox, which very-initially was used to bootstrap prefix-portage.
Here I install portage (and bash,wget,sandbox,python,...) to a different
prefix than the domain-prefix I give to portage's configure, to have a
fully portage-managed prefix.
It was a bit easier for me to have this in default path too.

This is to be compatible with upstream-portage: in some ebuilds I found
tweaks using "${ROOT}usr/bin", failing if ROOT doesn't have trailing
slash (sys-devel/libperl, dev-lang/perl, net-nds/openldap, ...).
The removal from EDEST is not really necessary, just for some
double-slash prettyness.

Sure, but I do not have this patches for upstream-portage yet, as I need
and use them for prefix-portage.
How much has portage-prefix-2.1.14 to do with official portage-2.1 (from
the SVN-POV) ?

For the readonly tree I have to say that I have an improved sandbox,
also wrapping the stat()-call, removing write-permission on readonly
files. Will paste the sandbox-patches soon, but I'm unsure yet if they
are ready for upstream-sandbox.

Can't remember what the real issue was to me, will do some more testing
without this patch.

I have a patched sandbox which can prevent creation of ${D}${EPREFIX}
