You still need the same /usr/portage tree to be on the box. That
ensures the dependancy/versioning stuff works.
Oh, I forgot, when you copy the files over, they need to be in the
/usr/portage/packages directory to work properly. A simple rsync works
for me, but there might be other ways to do this.
