Thanks to Brian Ferring, Michael Haubi, and a few others, last night  
I was able to properly bootstrap portage in a prefix for the first  
time...WOOT! No ebuilds that do anything useful, and many things are  
broken, but its a start. I hope to release a stage0 tarball for OS X  
devs very shortly, assuming I can keep Real Life and Work at bay for  
a bit :p

Once we have a tarball to start from, there will either be a prefixed  
portage svn branch in the mainline module, or possibly in the alt  
repo, thats up to the portage devs as to how they want to handle  
that. Adding prefix support is anything but trivial, so the patch is  
rather will be some work to stay inline with upstream for  

You can find some things here in the meantime:

But its not trivial to get it going, and no docs or anything yet....

Also Mike: you might also pop into #gentoo-alt, #gentoo-portage and  
peruse the gentoo-alt@ and gentoo-portage-dev@ ML archives, as the OS  
X team isn't the only ones with a vested interest in prefixes...  
Theres a couple people working on it for things like aix as well.
