1 I think wxMaxima came up on the gentoo-science list; there may already
2 be a request for an ebuild and someone may even have done it. Meanwhile,
3 ordinary Maxima, including the standard X interface, is already in
4 Portage. So are emacs, xemacs and texmacs, all of which provide a
5 user-friendly interface to Maxima. I personally use it from texmacs,
6 because it formats the results in highly-readable mathematical form,
7 rather than the "ASCII art" format of conventional Maxima. Will wxMaxima
8 do that?

Well, I want to know how to make ebuilds (please if you could send me the web site that explains it), but the main reason because I write here is that I suggest you to make an ebuild for wxmaxima:, there is the source-code and I have read somewhere that is GPL licensed, so there won't be any legal troubles.
