Thanks for the packages; yes, there is an easier way to deal with this problem.
Portage makes it easy to override the default values for $S:
...and, you would also specify the real archive name in $SRC_URI:
This way, the ebuild can be named "aria-0.10.1_pre3.ebuild" and everything
will work. BTW, naming the ebuild in the way you did is the right approach. :)
