Porting Portage and its tools on NetBSD/x86 platform

by Patrice Clement for Gentoo

For ages now, Gentoo uses Portage tools as its main package manager. Experienced users love the fine-grained customization it offers thanks to features like the USE flags, masking, etc.. The idea is to port Portage on NetBSD; anyone should be able to download a stage tarball containing Portage, the tree, and its tools and to use them on NetBSD.
