As a Gentoo Linux and a Macintosh user this is very very important to
me - I think you hit the nail on the head.
Being familiar with Portage I didn't like Fink much when I used it;
there are CLI utilities that I miss on OS X and I'd install Gentoo-OSX
in a flash if I thought it was reasonably usable, but IMO the prefixed
install is essential for gaining user confidence (particularly
considering the caution of the average Mac user!).

Good luck with that. Ulitmately I'd like to see Gentoo-OSX slay Fink
mercilessly & with gushing blood.
