Since this package is currently unmaintained, I'm happy to take the job on.

I will take care of bringing this to tree. Ebuild still needs some enhancements, i will post fixed version later...

Updated ebuild for mdbtools:

- port to autotools-utils eclass;
- restore all functionality from 0.6* ebuild: optional GUI building, optional ODBC dependency.

Chris, i do not test this ebuild deeply. But both commandline tools and GUI works. I will commit this ebuild to tree later
