Hello, I've written a gento

I've written a gentoo ebuild, which is available from bugzilla in bug 122141 ( I've also posted it to the sunrise overlay ( So it should be reviewed in some days and then available through layman.

At the moment I can't build the PVFoamReader library inside the sandbox, even if the parafoam USE-flag is active! However, the method I use is working outside the emerge/sandbox environment. So, please don't report any problems containing this library and paraFoam on bugzilla. Instead you can use the foamtovtk utility or the build in OpenFOAM support in paraview-2.6.2!

Have fun with it :-)
