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.
