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.
