I'm slightly confused, although the search box on the left just goes
via google, 'genpkg surfraw' does appear to produce a useful page.
Have they fixed this since you wrote?

Anyway, I'll leave it up to you, if you want me to remove it I will.

In the past I've just removed elvi and put a note in NEWS, but if you
want to provide a genportage wrapper I'm happy with that too.
