You can use any of the config update tools. For Exherbo, we're using
'eselect config'. For Gentoo, carry on using etc-update, or
dispatch-conf, or conf-update, or any of the zillion other options.

Binaries we will be doing at some point. But they're not an essential
feature for what we're doing.

Again, at some point, unless we decide that implementing them will
stop developers from fixing their bad development habits. But again,
they're not an essential feature nor even particularly useful.

For Exherbo we'll be doing cross compiling properly at some point. For
Gentoo you can't cross compile reliably anyway...

Uh... No particular need to have a Portage config anywhere...
