A quick and dirty but working method:

Install app-arch/rpm

download unattended installation file Elsinore.ScreenConnect.ClientSetup.sh

# chmod +x Elsinore.ScreenConnect.ClientSetup.sh

The edit below is not needed anymore with ScreenConnect 4.4+
edit and comment out the line trying dpkg before rpm

determinePackageType() {
if which pkgutil >/dev/null 2>&1; then echo pkg
# elif which dpkg >/dev/null 2>&1; then echo deb
elif which rpm >/dev/null 2>&1; then echo rpm
fi
}

# sudo ./Elsinore.ScreenConnect.ClientSetup.sh

to autostart after reboot check what service to add
# ls /etc/init.d/screenconnect*
# sudo rc-update add screenconnect-cd8b463fa6353159

Hmm, I wouldn't think you would have to comment out that dpkg check. Do you just have a dpkg that doesn't work, or does it specifically fail for ScreenConnect?

With dpkg it will try to solve dependencies to other dpkg packages, which of course do not exist in gentoo.
With rpm it did not care about depending on other specific rpm's. It just installed. So it was the quickest way to comment out the dpkg-line to make the installation script go straight to rpm. You have to make sure yourself you have any required dependencies installed from the gentoo ebuilds.
If the order in the script was switched so it tried rpm before dpkg, it would work out of the box, and maybe also remote unattended upgrade would work.
Have to also keep in mind that this will give orphaned files in the gentoo install that dont belong to any gentoo ebuild installations.

Oh, that's probably because our .deb package depends on java5-runtime, but there isn't an equivalent virtual package for our .rpm to depend on.

Well, there's no particular reason they're in that order in the first place, so changing it shouldn't be a problem.

I see the install script is fixed in 4.4
I edited my first post, now its just to run the install script as is and it will work if rpm tools are installed. No editing needed.
Also remote reinstall of unattended client works like a charm now.
great!
