Gentoo Prefix Boostrap

Highly experimental, use at your own risk and expect stuff to break.

Do What The Fuck You Want To Public License (WTFPL)
see LICENSE file

To get some help:
$ make help

To install everything:
$ make

To uninstall everything:
$ make uninstall

By default the Gentoo Prefix will be installed in $HOME/gentoo but this can
be overriden by specifying the EPREFIX environment variable, for example:
$ EPREFIX=/path/to/my/eprefix make

Successfully tested on:
 * Gentoo ;-)
 * Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
 * CentOS release 5.6 (Final)
 * Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat)
 * Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)
 * Mandriva Linux release 2011.0 (Official) for x86_64
