I dont know lisp myself, but beside the lisp specific configure opts
(which i cannot comment on, since i dont know them) the ebuild looks ok.
Why did you use the ebuild command to install this package? Just create
it in your local overlay and you can use emerge to install the package.
That additionally has the advantage, that the dependencies (like clisp)
will be installed, the ebuild command alone does not do any dependency
If you want to check, what it installs, you can either use emerge with
--verbose switch or tools like equery (from gentoolkit package) to view
the list of installed files.

I dont know, what you mean with this sentence, so if there is still
something left/open for a question, then i suggest you rephrase it and
post again on this list. As alternative, you could also ask on IRC in
channels like #gentoo-dev-help or #gentoo-sunrise on freenode network.
