I've been working on this, but ran into a block:  I'd need to maintain ebuilds 
for all the packages we depend on that are not yet in portage. :-/

Our best bet is to get into the webapps overlay, which is a little less strict 
than portage proper.

A tentative ebuild is in cvs for 1.2.0, I can update that for the latest 
version, and you can use ebuild ledger-smb-1.2.3.ebuild merge to install, 
instead of emerge.  You just have to manually g-cpan.pl or 'cpan' the other 

ACK. re the tentative ebuild:

I thought i had committed it a while ago.  It should be in the tree now,  but 
will still need some work
