As far as I am aware, Gentoo now supports something called prefix
installations where you can use portage on top of (at least some of)
the BSD's and Solaris and some old-school Unixes and other operating
systems that aren't linux, the ~x86-linux keywords are to just signify
that it's only being stabilised for linux, not any of the other
operating systems. I could be wrong though.
