Ok, the Gentoo portage is just like fink basicly. Same commands what the Linux distro uses. The directory setup is simple. Just install Fink frist in the /sw (default directory) then install DarwinPorts from source with the following commands
./configure --prefix=/sw make sudo make install
On the ./configure command you're just tossing in the command to make the Makefile to install the binary files into the /sw directory when you issue the make install command.
In the .profile just add a entry like this. PATH/sw/bin:/sw/sbin:$PATH export PATH
The gentoo portage installs packages into /usr/local
It's very simple really. If I really wanted too I could of installed Fink by source and issue it to install into the root area of the drive. Same goes with DarwinPorts, but since this is testing only I will try this out on the Beta builds.
Right now im using the portage programs to install all of the major tools of GNU Linux. If you want to try this just email me or PM me and i'll go over with the stuff you need to get started.
