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.
