new ebuild

The singularity ebuild hasn't been updated in over a year.  I made my own updated version, and test it on my machine, and it seems to work.  It has the following bug fixes over the previous ebuild:

- it actually works with the newer versions of singularity that are written mostly in Go and no-longer use autotools
- the /var directories are now preserved in the package (see also #692836)
- the package now warns when you are missing the required SQUASHFS kernel option
- a variety of dependencies that are required for version 3.4 are added (some of which were needed for 2.6.1, but I didn't bother to test which)
