Does vhashify/vunify really make sense on Gentoo? AFAIK, Gentoo does not
have a packagemanagement and you have to recompile everything (which
will probably produce different checksums).

When you do a 'make install' from the same source tree, vhashify/vunify will
still not work because most 'make install' do not preserve timestamps. But
because timestamps are used to check whether files are identically resp. are
going into the calculation of the hash value, you will not gain very much
with vhashify/vunify on Gentoo.
