Yes, Paraview is based on VTK, which also requires cmake, and there is 
indeed an ebuild for VTK.  You may also want to look at the ebuild for 
"octaviz", a project to run VTK from within octave:

I have used paraview a little myself.  I haven't taken the time to make 
an ebuild which compiles it from source, but I do have one that simply 
expands the pre-compiled tarball.  I can send it to you offlist if you like.
