Subject: [gentoo-science] sage queues

Dear all,
this is my first post to gentoo-science and I am writing because I have some
problems running experimental code from the sage project.
My issue is the following:
I have sci-mathematics/sage-4.7-r2 installed from the  sage-on-gentoo overlay
and I would like to install the combinat queue; I am following these
The command I am supposed to run is 
# sage -combinat install
unfortunately -combinat is not recognized by sage as a valid option. I
browsed a little bit around the filesystem and I noticed that $SAGE_ROOT is
empty (except for some documentation) while on other installations of sage
(not using the ebuilds) there is plenty of stuff including a devel/combinat
Is there an option I can use when installing sage to allow for experimental
sources? or is there any other way I can use queues without installing sage
not using portage?

PS: some weird behaviour:

% sage -h

  -t [options] <files|dir>
                      -- test examples in .py, .pyx, .sage or .tex files
                           -long  -- include lines with the phrase 'long time'
                           -verbose  -- print debugging output during the test
                           -optional  -- also test all #optional examples
                           -only-optional <tag1,...,tagn>  -- only run tests

Try 'sage -h' for more information.
