The axiom mechanism for this is to modify the Makefile.pamphlet to
introduce a new <<makefile.gentoo>> chunk. Then gentoo users would
set the AXIOM variable to:

                       this selects the makefile.gentoo chunk
which is where you would put the new .configure

Also, the 'pop up a terminal and hang' issue seems to have something
to do with a race condition. Graphics works and it is running some
graphics input test file (likely wiggle.input). If the graphics window
does not start, say because you do not have xhost permission to open
a window, then the build hangs.
