They both have the same foundations, but the things that make debian
debianny (eg dpkg, apt), and the things that make gentoo gentooey (eg
portage, their init scripts) are unrelated.

If you count the foundations as part of the distro, then they have a
lot in common; if you say the distro is the house on top, then they're
totally different~
