Ok, with that snapshot, you can try setting the ROOTPATH variable in  
make.conf something like:

	ROOTPATH=/path/to/bash:/path/to/gcc:$PATH

That *might* work, but I was having trouble with it on solaris last  
night. exg and/or I are going to refactor the PATH handling again to  
make this work a little smoother. The variable name will change to  
just DEFAULT_PATH in the next snapshot ( hooray for disregarding  
backwards compatibility :p )

If that doesn't work, you can also try editing the DEFAULT_PATH line  
in portage.py directly.

Another hack I thought of was autoconf'ing make.globals and use  
macros to find the paths to all tools needed  
(gcc,ld,as,ar,findutils,etc.etc.). This should make getting portage  
running very easy on most systems.
