I was in this situation a few years ago. I love gentoo but couldn't get my hd configuration to work with other distros. Then I found NixOS which made it easy to use my config. NixOS caches the binaries for common builds and isolates dependencies.

I love Nix too and have it on a secondary partition, but I'm not quite ready to use it as a primary driver - I think I want something closer to the mainstream for that.
