When portage installs a package after I emerge some-package where is it installed - my pwd or a specified directory?

I see it's specified in the ebuild file. Cool.

Not reliably, no. If it's specified in the ebuild, it's likely either a very simple application, or what upstream provides is so messy each executable has to be specifically handled and placed carefully. – reisio Jul 17 '12 at 23:40
