I have my own modified gentoo-sources and am making an
installed_unpacked installation. I made the following call to
importare --location /var/empty sys-kernel/gentoo-sources 2.6.26-r1

there a mistake in my call to importare?
For reference, the call to install gentoo-sources yields:
paludis -ip gentoo-sources

Building dependency list...
These packages will be installed:
