Yes, those links should be current. I'll will be doing an updated  
portage tarball sometime this weekend.

Yeah, I started running it on my ppc/linux machine. The strict path  
handling from before is now optional, so bootstrapping should be a  
lot easier if you want to use the host systems toolchain. Still  
haven't committed proper profiles for anything but os x yet  
though....SOON! The prefix tree should operate standalone now as  
well, so I now recommend setting it as your PORTDIR and not an overlay.

I've been a little busy with workwork, so I haven't spent too much  
time on it lately, but I did train a new dev who has been helping  
out. Mostly been squashing minor bugs and working on tools to aid  
development(repoman svn support, exg has started a bootstrap script)  
as opposed to adding a ton of additional ebuilds.
