Thoughts for sure, no implementation yet though. My fear is this  
would bring in many of the problems of interdomain stuff if we did it  
'right'. i.e. repo-ids, etc. But perhaps I'm making it more complex  
than need be, some extra data stored in the vdb and a simple lookup  
tool could 'just work'. I think along with just being able to find  
the filesystem location of a package, we might as well go all the way  
and basically do an internal pkgconfig clone. This would allow stuff  


	econf-or-src_compile() {
	    .../configure \
  	       --prefix=$(eprefix) \
	        --with-my-dependency=$(eprefix "<my-dependency-2")

	    append-flags $(eprefix --cflags "<my-dependency-2")
	    append-ldflags $(eprifix --libs "<my-dependency-2")

Some of this would definitely overlap with some of the features Dirk  
has asked for, i.e. merging a package to a selfcontained dir for  
public distribution, self-contained OS X frameworks, etc.

Its a good idea, IMHO, but will be awhile  before I personally will  
start hacking on it. Others are welcome to give it a go =)
