You probably want to read this:

  http://www.libguestfs.org/guestfs.3.html#state_machine_and_low_level_event_api

and this:

  http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-May/msg00003.html

The choices are:

(1) Port febootstrap + yum to Gentoo (not so hard).

(2) Change libguestfs to use portage.  (This was already done for the
Debian/debootstrap combo).

(3) Use the binary blobs from another machine, but note that we no
longer build full appliances in the Fedora RPMs.
