In principle, you don't need to set bootstrap hacks when you are not
compiling anything as the guide suggests so you don't need the tree
prior. In practice, I haven't verified that the guide is correct in
some months. However, that guide isn't for people that aren't deeply
involved with Gentoo Linux development, hence the warnings at the top,
so please don't complain about it.

I was suggesting, not complaining . That guide is the only
collection of hints I've found for running Prefix on a Gentoo host, so
thanks for putting it out there.

Well, it isn't the ONLY guide. It is always preferred to use the
official docs, http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/prefix/

More Interesting is how many packages actualy differs from main portage tree

% pwd

338


It is more interesting how many realy different packages in tree and in
overlay.
There may be only minor difference or some cosmetic changes like
keywords


So, roughly 338 packages are still in the prefix repo alone. That is
down ~30 in 5 months given my past analysis:

http://blog.jolexa.net/2012/02/gentoo-prefix-a-look-at-the-number-of-packages/
So, at the current rate, we can expect the migration to take another
~4.5 years.

I merge a lot of trivial things in the last weeks and filed a lot of
bugs (see tracker under
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315803)
I guess about 20 packages got merged already.

The main problem is the long response times of the maintainers in gx86.
