If you need to use this, I think you would have a better chance unpacking the RPM (using the 'alien' app I guess) and installing the files by hand, making the symlinks as the FAQ suggests. There seem to be binary libraries in there tho', which may be incompatible with your gentoo system.
You might be better off using the bj7004 driver as the FAQ suggests, if the quality is not real important. I have nil experience with the prob. so someone may have a better suggestion.
