Have done more tests now without some patches:

The test for variable 'sandbox_capable' in portage_exec.py relies on
having full path in SANDBOX_BINARY, otherways portage always spits
red("!!! Problem with sandbox binary. Disabling...\n\n")

Path-lookup seems to work for bash & mv, did not use prelink yet.

I do bootstrapping into a separate bootstrap-prefix, giving portage a
completely different '--with-offset-prefix' than it is installed into.
Thus the make.globals setting won't point to a real existing wget
without this patch, and I'd have to create an extra entry in make.conf,
potentially to be forgotten to be removed after 'emerge system' for the
empty domain-prefix.
