Ok, I'm not sure if it has been done

I've now committed libconfuse and updated ganglia to 3.1.2

The ganglia package still has some work to do (installing a config file, 
SMF, generating a gmetad and dev package, etc), but at least it is 
installing all the necessary binaries now, and they can be run manually.

Any feedback is obviously quite welcome, as I haven't used GAR before, 
although make and svn are quite familiar.
