I created an ebuild for latex-mk-1.3, a tool that runs latex automatically as often as needed.
It works fine. There are 3 things which need to be checked:
1) I put it in app-text. Correct if this is wrong
2) License "Look in file COPYING". It is a an MIT-like, yet unstandardized license (I think, but I'm not sure).
3) make;make install copies some examples in /usr/share/latex-mk (this dir is created anyway). Do we need to do some magic in order to introduce an example or doc flag?
I'll attach the ebuild...

Here comes the ebuild. It works and installs fine on my amd64.
Please check the LICENSE in the ebuild. I don't think GPL is the right one

Here is the COPYING file for your convenience
You ebuild looks good except for the LICENSE,
and the LICENSE seems to be "BSD license with
advertising clause". (See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/bsd.html)
Could you contact the upstream author to remove
the advertising clause? Thanks in advance.
(app-text seems the right place for the ebuild,
and no need to introduce doc USE flag here)
Great, I contacted the upstream maintainer. I'll report back here, when I get a reply.
Update. I tried to contact the author of latex-mk and never received a reply. So
I guess we'll have to live with the license as it is right now. Would still be
nice to get this in.
