simple answer: yes , gentoox has excellent usb support and pretty much all usb devices work natively in linux without the need for a 3rd party drive , gps devices are just dummy serial devices that relay info to whatever process is looking for it at that time so I don't see any problems with it working out of the box...

not simple answer: depends , all companies make their krap different , you never can be 100% sure if something will work untill you plug it in and watch what syslog spits at you..

gpsdrive is available in portage so you can install it by doing
emerge gpsdrive
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?
