Using bash under root I tried to install some packages and whenever I tried I got

!!! Invalid PORTDIR_OVERLAY (not a dir): '/usr/portage'
!!! main-repo not set in DEFAULT and PORTDIR is empty. 
!!! Problem with sandbox binary. Disabling...

How do I install something like imagemagick, ffmpeg, gimp, vlc, etc for Chromium OS?
