This page shows you another way to get the latest Portage tree from within your install chroot.
To use this method, you download a snapshot snapshots from inside the chroot, extract it to the /usr directory, use git to activate the funtoo.org branch, and then run emerge --sync to quickly download the very latest updates to the tree:
(chroot) # cd /usr (chroot) # wget http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/funtoo/funtoo-current/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.xz (chroot) # tar xf portage-latest.tar.xz (chroot) # rm portage-latest.tar.xz (chroot) # cd /usr/portage (chroot) # git checkout funtoo.org (chroot) # emerge --sync
This method uses wget (HTTP) to grab the vast majority of data and could be faster or more reliable for some users.
