Hello Bill,

the two GSC Ubuntu DEB packages (e.g. version 22.04) can be downloaded from here:
gsc Global Star Catalog
and
gsc-data Global Star Catalog

By inspecting the content of the Debian package (here version 20.04.1) one can see:

$ dpkg -c ./gsc_1.3_ubuntu20.04.1_amd64.deb

For installing that on Gentoo probably the most simple ansatz is to checkout it out from git and compile & install it.
$ git clone https://git.launchpad.net/gsc
