The details are a bit long to explain but everything provided by sage is
currently split. Technically what is missing is some scripts from the spkg
sage_scripts (provided by our sage-baselayout ebuild). Most of the files in
$SAGE_LOCAL/bin of a vanilla install that starts with sage are provided 
by this
spkg. And we omit a lot of them, some are already installed only on use flag
request. We could add more if it was useful and feasible from a package
management perspective.

I must say that talking with sage-developers interested in sage installed with
portage there is a possibility that some stuff may come back in some form once
we figured it out. Something like sage -combinat creates a new sage branch.
There is a possibility that we could allow such a branch to be created 
inside a
user account (not system wide) and allow its use. But that's still some 
way off
on my map. In fact it may come as a surprise to my fellow sage-on-gentoo devs.
