Some people including myself moved the tree to /var by variable definitions 
(and not wild mounting) a while ago. This configuration *is* supported for a 
while now but not the default and if tools break they have to be fixed anyway. 

(Side note: At least most of the common tools like gentoolkit parts or repoman 
work on my machines with the moved tree.)
