Technically mgorny is correct here. FHS requires that everything under /var/lib be under a directory for the package or for the distro . Note the comment about packaging support in 5.8.1. Based on that this is my thought: * /var/lib/portage is for portage specific stuff -- maybe even /var/db/pkg in the future should go to /var/lib/portage/pkg. * /var/lib/gentoo, on the other hand, could be where repos, distfiles and binpkgs go.
