NEW: math/gap

Kaashif Hymabaccus-2
GAP is a system for computational discrete algebra, with particular
emphasis on Computational Group Theory. GAP provides a programming
language, a library of thousands of functions implementing algebraic
algorithms written in the GAP language as well as large data libraries
of algebraic objects.

Some things to note:

* The distfile, work dir, actual version string are all slightly
  different: 4r8p10, 48, 4.8.10, that's why there's all this ${V}

* There is a test that apparently checks if our cwd is in the source
  code, that's why I have a do-test instead of just using
  TEST_TARGET. This way, the tests report no errors at all.

* I'm not an expert with autotools, I noticed that the build was using
  -lreadline instead of -lereadline, so I just used sed to change it
  around in some files, maybe there's a better way to do it.

* I noticed that the OpenBSD has the line:

> ac_cv_func_timer_create=${ac_cv_func_timer_create=yes}

  Isn't this wrong? OpenBSD doesn't have timer_create, right? gap
  checks HAVE_TIMER_CREATE in some files and uses timer_create. To get
  it to compile, I just changed the #if HAVE_TIMER_CREATE to #if 0,
  but maybe I missed something? Is there a way to turn off using

I was able to run the test suite on amd64 and sparc64 and got no
warnings (make test):

> #I  No errors detected while testing
