Unless something has changed, I believe you also need XCode to build
Gentoo Prefix.

Oh, one limitation of Gentoo Prefix is that in general you're stuck
with the system libc.  Depending on how old it is, that can be a
significant limitation.  I know that there were efforts made as part
of GSoC to get Prefix working with a Gentoo glibc.  However, that
effort was focused on Android, and thus it probably targeted a linux
system call interface.  I don't know the status of it offhand and
whether it can be made to work under OSX.
