The problem is happening for real at 
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87758

there baselayout is necessary.  However, baselayout is only pulled in 
the initial "emerge system" if you use ACCEPT_KEYWORD="~ppc-macos". 
Hence, I can't compile, because QTDIR is not set for me, while someone 
having a complete ~ppc-macos system can.  Portage won't pull the 
dependency of baselayout for a reason I think, but the particular 
problem sheds this light on the whole problem of how to test what on 
which system.

I still think that I either shouldn't have been able to emerge QT or 
that "emerge system" should provide the same base for {,~}ppc-macos, 
since portage doesn't pull these packages because they are never 
depended on.

I think you cannot sell a WONTFIX/REJECTED/INVALID to a user that 
emerged unstable QT and doxygen on a stable profile.  But people may 
disagree with me here.
