Yes, more like its own shell/compiler environment. I tried both fink and macports to deal with packages on some old Macs; the problem with fink (which I had no real problem with otherwise) is that it wasn't obvious how to keep packages separate from the System stuff (like the System Perl), so I had a nightmare dealing with a different Perl version, plus CPAN, plus fink, and they didn't want to get along so well; macports did crazy stuff like make itself owner of apps and member of groups; again, a serious problem with boundaries. Gentoo took a while to get installed, but I'm really happy that everything is living in its own space....it comes with its own shell and basic apps and Perl and and and....so I don't have to worry that I'm going to mess up my basic OSX system.
