[Gentoo] Becoming a great distro for science

In the continuing saga of making Gentoo a great distribution for chemistry and structural biology, I’ve been packaging computational and molecular graphics applications. The latest addition to the tree is molscript, a popular program for preparing publication-quality graphics.

Other recent additions by myself and others include GAMESS, NAMD, MOLMOL, NMRPipe and MOPAC7.

With some luck and some time, we should see VMD and CCP4 in the relatively near future, among others.
