1 Thanks for the response, I guess I'll post to the osx mailing list, but
2 really my issue isn't about osx per se, but taking the osx portage port and
3 making it run on any posix system (solaris, osx, flavors of linux etc) in a
4 sandboxed environment.

17 The osx port runs with the same ebuilds as the main portage tree right?

25 The basic idea is you bootstrap an environment on an existing system, and
26 then build rpm's on top of that. It would be nice to take advantage of
27 Gentoo's larger component tree (openpkg has ~400 items) as well as the
28 larger gentoo community.
