Welcome to the Javaranch, fellow Gentoo user. Gentoo does not appear to be a supported configuration for Weblogic. I'd think Gentoo unsuitable for data center use for several reasons: lack of professional support, the source-level distribution and lack of a standard platform among them. However, since Weblogic is built on Java, I'd think it should run on any Linux distribution that could support a JDK. Try installing one of the Linux versions.
If that doesn't work and you REALLY want to run Gentoo and Weblogic, consider using VMWare to run SUSE or RedHat in a virtual machine and install Weblogic on it.

I dont think there will be any problem running weblogic under gentoo - unless you use the standard JVMs - do not use the one that gentoo comes bundled with. Weblogic 9.0 onwards uses weblogic's JRockit 5 - I dont know if it plays well with Sun's JVM

Then I run weblogic in ubuntu dapper and dont remember doing anything special to make it work - other than pointing it to the right JVM.

Good luck !!
