The ones that immediately spring to mind for me are Open Dynamics  
Engine and Crystal Space 3D.  Naturally, this depends on what you mean  
by "portable".  OpenMM will only really be useful if you have a recent  
NVidia or ATI GPU and are using an OS and compiler that supports the  
appropriate programming environment (CUDA or Brook+).  So we only have  
a narrow range of configurations we're concerned about supporting in  
the near term.
