Wait, what? Why would you need any utilities at all to do that? Also, there are no ebuilds for "rufus" or "etcher" in a recently-synced portage tree.

All you need to do is "dd if=distroname-1.2.3.iso of=/dev/sdN bs=32k", making sure that sdN refers to the USB disk you wish to overwrite with the distro installation image. BIOSes are smart enough to invoke El Torito when they boot from a USB disk and see an ISO or UDF image on it. At least IME. (If YMMV, tell us details.)
