#93 PR merged: Fixing ebuild to be Gentoo compliant

I worked over the ebuild in /usr/share/rear/contrib to make it Gentoo compliant as stated on http://devmanual.gentoo.org/ebuild-writing/index.html

The ebuild went through several reviews and has received Gentoo developer approval for being ready-as-is for portage tree. I deleted obsolete functions and variables, fixed the ebuild header, adjusted the image creation (ebuild image != rear image) and added a use-flag for installing the udev rule to leave it to user's choice. The installation of any documantion is missing in the current ebuild, which I fixed as well.

As long as no additional directories will be added to rear's root directory, this ebuild should work for any future releases, as well.

If you decide to merge this into master I will go ahead and start writing a Gentoo overlay XML. Opposed to the current Sunrise Overlay we can announce an own overlay and host the rear.ebuild directly through github without me having to go through an approval process for every version bump, as I currently do on Sunrise.

Looks ok, for what I can understand of it. Thanks for your contribution !

For some reason, not clear to me as I cannot seem to trace it, the rear.ebuild disappeared. So I am going to get the contents from this pull-request and add it again.
