Tinderbox for Gentoo Prefix

Gentoo has a CI system to automatically test installation of packages with various configurations. However, during development changes to ebuilds may break packages in ways that only affect Gentoo prefix. It would be great to have some CI infrastructure in place for Gentoo Prefix bootstraps, but also a tinderbox running not on vanilla Gentoo, but on Gentoo prefix to quickly identify problems with new packages as they are introduced into the tree.
