Might I suggest taking a look at another ebuild that builds swig
bindings for an example? Please take a look at
dev-libs/xapian-bindings, it sounds quite similar to what you may
need. As far as one package per binding, I think that its better
handled from within a single package, controlled by use flags to
enable the various desired bindings. Mainly this will ease maintenance
of the package down the line. The ebuild
dev-libs/xapian-bindings-1.2.8.ebuild in particular is a great
