Thanks, I will try this. If I delete the package info there, will
portage thing that the package is not installed, right?

I teorically want to manually delete what makes portage think that the
package is installed, so that it will install it again.
I cannot issue a direct emerge command because catalyst does not support
it. I don't have emerge available, though catalyst uses it internally.
But it's not customizable.

> emerge <package> will reinstall it...

I need to achieve it without emerge.

Thanks.

If the stage supports it you can use N/fsscript. Or if you want to
unmerge the package at the beginning of the loop you could modify
/usr/lib/catalyst/targets/stageN/stageN-chroot.sh.
