@games team,

If I find time, I'll write an ebuild myself and upload it here.

my suggestion

- bump to eapi3
- autotools and eutils no longer needed
- fdo-mime and gnome2-utils eclass added for updating the installed mime/desktop database as well as the new icons
- no other icons needed
- License changed
- amd64 keyword added
- engine useflag added
- x11-libs/libXaw already pulls everything else in (as RDEPEND and DEPEND)
- datadir corrected (installs into /usr/share/games/games otherwise)
- added dies to all non-eclass helpers
