I am not sure if this is really a replacement but it looks it is or will be in future.
This is now merged into the tools/ tree of the kernel tree. But it doesn't include the pmtools pieces. Those are at www.lesswatts.org.

Okay, I've started hacking together an ebuild for this.
I find it quite annoying that these tools are part of the kernel sources so I put them into a tarball on my dev space. Please find attached the ebuild I'm currently using. I took the sources from 3.4.18 kernel version because that's the one I'm currently using on most of my machines.
Comments are welcome.

The needed patch to get the ebuild working.

Sorry, first patch contained a bad line. This one is good :)
bug #410439 and bug #424643 include also ebuilds and some more patches, maybe you want to take a look at them?
imho src_compile and src_install is not nescessary in your ebuild, if you want to process the default operations.
Maybe the package should be rather just cpupower, like in other linux distros. Took me a while to realize this is a same thing. ;-) Works fine for me on 3.7.1 kernel but looks I will downgrade to 3.4 because can't make by CPU to go to the highest turbo frequency (hope the "smp_scheduler or mc_scheduler values in the configuration file" will help me, removed since kernel 3.5. :().
sys-power/cpupower-3.8_rc4 is already in the tree. I guess this can be closed
