I'll answer this one myself. FreeCAD does a much better job on importing both
STEP and IGES than brl-cad. It's possible I've missed just the right
combination of switches on one of the brl-cad imports, but with freecad it
just works. I may need to find some more memory though - 1G isn't really
enough to handle the biggest files with either of them. The freecad gui is
also significantly more modern. Whether that makes it more productive is an
open question, but it's certainly quicker for looking at models.

I'm surprised that works - freecad-0.9.2646 has a dependency on =media-
libs/coin-3.1.2 unless you also modified the ebuild. I ended up using the
ebuild for 0.10.3025 attached to this bug, and it's working fine now.
