Status: The ebuilds compile and install a shellx64.efi / shellia32.efi file to /boot/efi. I have not: - tested the resulting binaries - adapted the ebuild for alternate supported architectures (arm / arm64) but this should be straightforward. Since /boot/efi must be a separate file system from / the mount-boot eclass should be modified to ensure it is present or a new eclass introduced to help.

I have tested the resulting file in a xen virtual machine with USE="ovmf". My system has xen-4.5 installed. The virtual disk has a gpt partition table with one partition of type EF00 formatted with mkfs -t vfat. The shellx64.efi file is copied on to this partition as EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi. The xen config is: name = "efihvm" builder = "hvm" disk = [ "file:/tmp/xentest/efihvm.img,hda,w" ] boot = "c" memory = 1024 vcpus = 2 vfb = [ "vnc=true" ] device_model_override = "/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64" device_model_version = "qemu-xen" bios = "ovmf" vnc = 1 vnclisten = "0.0.0.0" vncunused = 1 keymap = "en-gb" serial = "pty" Now I just need to get my physical hardware to work with it...

Created attachment 494806 [details] uefi-shell-2017.ebuild Updated to new url as per comment #5. Combined live and release ebuilds in a style similar to other packages. Also modified some of the src_prepare steps to suit GCC 5.
