Speaking only for myself: no, this thought didn't cross my mind. But
then again, which problem would it solve?
What I can tell you is that local package compilation is difficult
(which compiler is chosen, are the libraries installed and compiled with
a suited compiler, ...). Gentoo has solved that problem, but I don't
think we should copy Portage.
