IMHO this functionality/package may be interesting to add (perhaps by default) in Gentoo environment.
'command-not-found' - In case a command could not be found this utility searches for packages containing this or a similar command (bash,zsh)
Unfortunately, it searches only the ARCH database.
Anyway, for those interest, I added an ebuild to the mv overlay
(available by layman).
Sadly I don't know how to code, otherwise I would try to make a port for gentoo.
Thanks for adding in your overlay! ;-)

It is not a question of coding: Since Gentoo is source-based (in contrast
to Arch) the database needed for such a tool cannot exist.
There are some attempts for some substitute http://www.portagefilelist.de/
If one really wants to get active in that direction, one should probably
find a solution together with the maintainers of that website (e.g. that
they make their database available for public download or something
similar). I have neither the time nor the strong interest to do so.
BTW: I fixed some minor coding issues of command-not-found in
the ebuild. (E.g. /etc/profile.d/cnf.sh was in non-POSIX syntax,
causing horrible problems if /bin/sh is symlinked to dash).
