    I used to create my own chroot with debootstrap, works perfectly

    You may also be interested in looking at crouton to create OS chroots.

    Caveat: I have NOT tested crouton with CloudReady yet.

    Chromium lacks GCC and Portage can't work without GCC. So the first step to unlock portage it to get GCC binaries, e.g. via chromebrew.

    I don't like chrooting because I look at it as a way to install linux inside linux, I have normal Gentoo distribution aside on my disk for this.

    Very interesting, thanks for the tip about Chromebrew, I never heard of it. Here are some links for those who might want to learn more details.
