Evolution-RSS SVN Ebuild

Ok so I haven't been able to get it to build yet but I am working on an evolution-rss svn ebuild. My main impetus for this ebuild has been the fact that I filed a bug a week or two ago about the appearance of feeds when using a dark theme and it is now apparently resolved in svn. This and the lack of a dbus connection are my two biggest gripes with evolution-rss. The theme bug is the classic "light text on white background" issue that seems to plague dark themes. I'm looking forward to GNOME 2.24 because they have been working on dark theme integration. Hopefully this will create a much more usable dark theme environment. Maybe I'll be lucky and a new version of evolution-rss will be released for the new evolution and I won't have to fiddle with this ebuild any more. If I do get it to work before a new version is released I will be sure to share it here.
