ebuild file, new version

I gave it a try and created an ebuild for dev-libs/zziplib-0.13.71. This is the latest version released by upstream. It has a CMake build system. The autotools build system has been declared deprecated and will be dropped in a future release.

So far, I have just tested building and installation, and it looked good. If something is not OK, I hope that others can build upon this work.

Both attached files are created by me. The contributions to the original code (patch file) are (obviously) based on the original code, from the zziplib GitHub repository. The ebuild file is based on dev-libs/zziplib/zziplib-0.13.69-r1.ebuild in the Gentoo portage tree. For both files, my contributions are licensed under the same licenses as the original code, with the option to upgrade to more recent versions of the licenses.

This new version obsoletes bug 700490. I also did not see bug 716494 when building.
