I'm sorry, I don't understand. What's the problem of having the
following in /etc/fstab?
LABEL=Portage /usr/portage ext4 noatime,auto 0 2
LABEL=Source /usr/source ext4 noatime,auto 0 2
(Replace LABEL=Portage with /dev/sda7, if you want to.)
Why do you need to bindmount or link the directories when you can
mount them wherever you want?
