I do not see how it can aid bootstrap.

What is it needed for?

What is a constant function that always returns the value of EPREFIX if
the input pkg is in the vdb useful for?

This is not prefix specific; you should send it to the
gentoo-portage-dev mailing list.

No, we want a path lookup for those to have some flexibility, especially

I don't think it's the right place to fix it, I'll look into the
problem. How have you figured it out exactly?
