Back when I asked the original question, I researched GPIB Controller Chips.  This was the only option I could find for sale.  (Which in my opinion wasn't any more viable than doing it from scratch.)

Agreed.  The basic GPIB bus protocol is easier to implement in a microcontroller than the interface to this chip.  The benefit of using the chip would be speed, but that's not too important to me.
