<><><><>

Ok, so I started on http://gentoo-wiki.com/Portage-prefix at the very
top of the page.  I downloaded
http://dev.gentoo.org/~kito/distfiles/portage-prefix-latest.tar.bz2
and then configured and installed portage in ~/gentoo, and then the
page sort of drops off.

Running ~/gentoo/usr/bin/emerge gives:

>>> //Users/nathan/gentoo/tmp doesn't exist, creating it...
>>> //Users/nathan/gentoo/var/tmp doesn't exist, creating it...
>>> //Users/nathan/gentoo/var/lib doesn't exist, creating it...
!!! Problem with sandbox binary. Disabling...

--- 'profiles/updates' is empty or not available. Empty portage tree?
emerge: wheel group use is being deprecated. Please update group and passwd to
        include the portage user as noted above, and then use group portage.
!!! ARCH is not set... Are you missing the /etc/make.profile symlink?
!!! Is the symlink correct? Is your portage tree complete?

<><><><>

Then, further down on the page there's an  "OSX quick bootstrap
(experimental)" section.  It starts off with "First, find the
bootstrap script and let it install portage."

Elsewhere on the page it says "Bootstrapping is done using a bootstrap
script in ${PORTDIR}/scripts/bootstrap-prefix.sh."  <-- but theres no
bootstrap-prefix.sh anywhere in my ~/gentoo

<><><><>

What next?
