the Axiom project, well knowing GCL's problems, maintains its own GCL
fork which is included in the tarballs it provides. I don't know about
the other Axiom forks, since neither OpenAxiom nor FreeCAS are in
portage
that leaves maxima: infact the only reason why maxima still hangs to GCL
is because they have no alternative to GCL on Windows, but that's not a
problem for us
