Possible ebuild

I'm not really much of an ebuild developer, but I managed to get this one which seems to work.  I haven't checked if it installs in the same location, and it doesn't seem to install a man page, but hopefully it will help.

Thank you for your contribution. I had a short look on the ebuild. 
Here a few ideas:

* Please test the ebuild with repoman
* Please update the year in the header
* about the man page, we can help you in the support channels
Especially on IRC #gentoo-dev-help
