Looks like python can't find Portage. That is at least "weird". Are
you sure Portage uses prefix python, and that prefix python was indeed
compiled by the ebuild?
I think you suffer from an old bug that aparently is still not yet fixed
properly. Or it just is there because you use a long living Prefix
Check if your $EPREFIX/usr/lib and $EPREFIX/lib are symlinks pointing to
the lib64 variants. If you fix that, it may be that python suddenly can
find python again.
It's a reasonably long living install.
It turns out my $EPREFIX/usr/lib and $EPREFIX/usr/lib64 were different
directories. $EPREFIX/usr/lib had gcc, gentoolkit and portage
directories inside it, so I moved them all to $EPREFIX/usr/lib64,
removed the $EPREFIX/usr/lib directory and symlinked $EPREFIX/usr/lib64
Now all is well, and the upgrade to 9500 succeeded, thanks.
