The PORTDIR variable was[1] used to point to the main package repository hosted on the system. It has since been deprecated in favor of the location attribute (whose default value is /var/db/repos/gentoo) of the Gentoo repository configuration inside /etc/portage/repos.conf.

The current value of the location attribute can be obtained by using portageq:

user $portageq get_repo_path / gentoo
