Modified ebuild with duktape support

Hello Gentoo folks!

The net-libs/libproxy library is the last package on my system that depends on the outdated version of the dev-lang/spidermonkey package and thus on Python 2.7. I have recently discovered that libproxy supports duktape as an alternative JS engine and it would be great to support building the library against it.

Modified ebuild attached ;)

Thanks in advance!

/me scratches head

I see that upstream commit bcde153760ee885d2c633994e78ac447f8ec0713 merged duktape support. But that commit isn't in any tagged version yet.

So I don't know how we can use the ebuild at this time.

Oops, yeah, sorry, you are right. I built it from git source to test my poc and noticed the flag and didn't check tags  before putting together that ebuild. I'll post an upstream issue to get a fresh release going.

We finally got a new release from the upstream 0.4.18!
