In case any is interested in trying it out: I am successfully using Guix under Gentoo via this overlay: https://github.com/trofi/nix-guix-gentoo > Please leave me a feedback on your experience. IMHO, it is a great package manager, especially when being concerned about (bit-wise) reproducibility, 'slotting' various versions and fast movement with low risk (reversible upgrades). The one feature I miss compared to portage is the configuration via USE flags: One could patch Guix package definitions to add compile to flags etc, but you can't simply let the package manager resolve the dependencies for you.
