thank you for investigating yourself on this problem - so we should check if
gap is running correctly on your pc. I dont know much about gap, but you could
try to start gap manually and then to exit the program (type gap and inside
gap "quit;" ).
I will forward this mail to the science mailing list which will be the place
to discuss problems regarding Sage-on-Gentoo (at least for a while).
Cheers,
Christopher
