Convoluted? That would be my cue :-p

I'll assume that the darwin profile has prefix /, with no special PATH, 
while the "portage for os x/second class citizen" profile gets prefix 
(say) /opt/gentoo, and PATH prepended with /opt/gentoo/bin:/opt/gentoo/... 

Now, if an ebuild needs to know that it has "2nd class" status, wouldn't a 
use flag be appropriate? And if you were to implement such a use flag, 
could it not be useful to other second-class citizens? For example, in 
"portage for non-Gentoo Linux" or "portage for solaris" profiles.


[1] On reflection, I agree with grobian. I don't think it makes sense to 
try and support an appended PATH (though it may be useful for some as an 
unsupported option.)
