You can get it here: http://www.gnome.org/projects/gnumeric/announcements/1.4/gnumeric-1.4.0.html
The old ebuild works but gnome-extra/libgsf needs to be >= 1.10.0 .
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 45177 [details]
Updated libgsf dependancy, umong others, following
table at http://www.gnome.org/projects/gnumeric/downloads.shtml .

That ebuild is giving me the follow problem:
/bin/install: cannot stat 'gnumeric-C.omf.out': No Such File or Directory
make: *** [install-data-hook-omf] Error 1
make: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/portage/gnumeric-1.4.0/work/gnumeric-1.4.0/doc/C'
During the configure process I noticed following missing library:
pxlib >= 0.3.0
... Package pxlib was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `pxlib.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'pxlib' found
This adds support for Paradox Database files: http://pxlib.sourceforge.net/
Also perl support seems to be disabled (missing perl USE too)
When clicking on "Help"-> "Live Assistance" it pops up an error message: "Specified location is invalid".
Everything else seems to be working fine.
I was able to successfully use the ebuild provided by Robert Paskowitz. I had to emerge scrollkeeper to get rid of the "/bin/install: cannot stat 'gnumeric-C.omf.out': No Such File or Directory" error I was getting. Should scrollkeeper be a dependency of Gnumeric 1.4.0?
I also used the build provided by Robert Paskowitz.
I did not have to install scrollkeeper, but scrollkeeper is needed, because in the end it says "Updating Scrollkeeper"!
I will agree with Priit Laes on the need for perl support. When the config runs, gnumeric checks for pxlib and psiconv.
After the configuration is finished, it reports that there is not any support for:
Maybe we can have a USE for each one of them.
Also I get the same problem when I use the live assistance
works fine for me. Haven't tried live assistance though.

lastest is 1.4.1
1.4.1 is in Portage, thanks to Foser :D
But it's still missing perl IUSE and configure flag.
the perl plugin seems to be unmaintained & reading the changelog it is discouraged to try and build it. During the 1.2 series it was hardcoded disabled, I don't see any work being done on it since then except the smallish configure change that makes it buildable (not by default) again.
