Songbirdnest announced the end of Songbirds Linux Development (bug 139019).
As a result a new Project has formed and this should be the place to maintain a new ebuild.
No, a bug is not “a place to maintain a new ebuild”; a bugzilla is not a forum.
If you want to submit a working ebuild, fine, but if you just want to discuss about it, please don't do it here. Thanks.

Yeah i'm working on it, upstream isn't that clear about how to build it.
I try to avoid a suggested 2GB svn checkout from songbirdnest ... hang on.

not jet finished ebuild
Upsream suggests to fetch http://publicsvn.songbirdnest.com/vendor-binaries/trunk/linux-x86_64/ or i586, but thats a 2GB checkout.
The current ebuild misses http://publicsvn.songbirdnest.com/vendor-binaries/trunk/linux-x86_64/mozilla/release/include/gfx/nsIImage.h which is not present on my system w/ xulrunner-1.9.2 or firefox 3.6.3.

i've made some progress in compiling nighingale, by creating a songbird vcs ebuild, see http://svn.xmw.de/websvn/gentoo-overlay/media-sound/songbird/ .
After hours of irc chat with AndrewL and Cloaky32_dll on #nightingale on irc.mozilla.org, we could switch to nightingale-cvs core on top of the partly binary songbird-vcs dependencies/vendor files ( http://svn.xmw.de/websvn/gentoo-overlay/media-sound/nightingale/nightingale-1.8.0_alpha1628.ebuild ). Both tarball and LiveVCS is supported. Next step is to switch to nightingale source dependencies/vendor files ... stay tuned.
maybe taking a look at Arch's AUR helps ?
from my first glimpse they're fetching from the same source:
Michael why don't you commit this on sunrise?
There is a stable release of the Nightingale. Why we don't have an ebuild in Portage tree.

Because nobody has stepped up to make an ebuild and maintain it. Are you volunteering?

My attempt at an ebuild which I made according to the Archlinux PKGBUILD (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=52721) and the included nightingale.mk file.
Works but needs refining especially the configuration part.

Here's the updated ebuild for the newest version.
Would love to see this in portage.

Thanks Shubhadeep, your ebuild works for me in a ~amd64 box
