Ah, okay, that does make the situation slightly different then. Though in 
theory, you should be able to simply install a stock xorg, then check out the 
unichrome stuff from cvs and build everything you need...

...Though it sounds like the xorg-unichrome ebuild will suit you fine.

The 3D driver is very recent, I'd venture a guess it isn't in there yet.

Looks like you're rolling with fluxbox, that'll do fine. I've got both KDE and 
WindowMaker on mine. I use KDE on occasion, because I can actually alt-tab to 
a konsole and have it overlay video (good for debug/testing), but WM for 
actual production. KDE takes forever to load, but once its up, its up. WM 
launches in about .5 seconds.
