Included please find the attached aqsis-cvs.ebuild.
Aqsis is a GPL'd 3D graphics render engine that implements the REYES algorithm and conforms to the RenderMan specification. Aqsis is uniquely suited to artists who wish to produce professional 3D graphics, up-to-and-including full-length feature films.
I suggest media-gfx for the category. The rationale for providing a live CVS ebuild is that the software has improved considerably over the 0.8 release, especially the build system, and a 0.9 snapshot isn't available.

This new "regular" ebuild replaces the originally-submitted "live" CVS ebuild,
and takes advantage of the just-released Aqsis 0.9.0 tarball.
Could this be added to portage? K-3D uses aqsis and to get K-3D into portage, this would also be cool to be in portage!
Ehm, ehm. How do I install this *.ebuild ?
emerge -p aqsis-0.9.0.ebuild
does not work.
For ebuilds to work, they have to have the correct directory structure in the portage tree, you can't just download a file to some arbitrary location on your filesystem and emerge it.
You'll have to refer to the ebuild instructions on how to set things up (a little too detailed to go into here, and I'm just learning). Or, lobby to get this ebuild into the portage tree :)
surprisingly k3d is in portage, but aqsis isn't :/

aqsis-0.9.1.ebuild (New Package)
This obsoletes the previously-submitted aqsis-0.9.0 ebuild.

aqsis-0.9.2.ebuild (new package)
Updated ebuild for aqsis-0.9.2, released Wed, 11 Aug 2004.
news on getting this into portage?
It would be nice since, since k3d ( see bug #51440 ) is able to use this renderer.
Added please test it and open bugs if isn't working as should
