I do not see how it can aid bootstrap.

What is it needed for?

What is a constant function that always returns the value of EPREFIX if the input pkg is in the vdb useful for?

This is not prefix specific; you should send it to the gentoo-portage-dev mailing list.

No, we want a path lookup for those to have some flexibility, especially for bash.

I do not see how, given that we bootstrap wget too.

I don't think it's the right place to fix it, I'll look into the problem. How have you figured it out exactly? -- Emanuele -- gentoo-osx@g.o mailing list
