I have 3 Gentoo boxen and wondered the same thing.  I've taken the 
approach of sharing the tree over NFS.  This doesn't give me the cache 
updates so searches take forever on the remote boxes but I can do updates.

The ~900MB size for the portage tree was a turnoff though...Zenwalk Linux will give you a full install with Xorg and XFCE4 desktop in the space of 900 MB. Anyone know if the portage tree can be removed and still have portage functional?
