These ports are complete Linux distributions rather than linux_base ports and
don't really suit our Ports Collection infrastructure,  so
they should be renamed to emulators/linux_dist-gentoo-stage[123], but the
opportunity to install them as linux_base should be kept.
After the repocopy the patches mentioned below should be applied.

Detailed changelist for patches:
	- Add WITH_LINUXBASE for using as a linux_base, otherwise it installs
	  under ${PREFIX}/${PORTNAME}
	- Add an explanation in pre-fetch to explain WITH_LINUXBASE
	- Move pkg- scripts into files/ to reinplace-edit them appropriately
	- Change to static plists
	- do-extract is unnecessary now since we have static plists
	- Drop alpha support for linux_base-gentoo-stage1 since
		1, alpha support was dropped in CURRENT as well, and RELENG_[56]
		   are badly maintained for alpha
		2, I don't have hardware to test these changes for alpha

Discussed with: netchild


Patches include plist, so they are very big, I haven't attached them, but made them
