Amarok for Plasma 5

I updated to KDE & Plasma 5, first from area51, nowadays from the 
regular ports tree and have been running it ever since. One of the 
things I missed most was my trusty amarok player.

Luckily, the amarok master branch has been updated with everything 
necessary to use it with Plasma 5 and I decided to try and port it. Long 
story short, I have a working port (though not every single feature 
tested) and I thought to share it with you guys. With some luck I can 
prevent someone from doing extra work once a new amarok version is released.

You can find the port at the url below, just drop it in your ports tree, 
download the master zip from github. You'll also have to change the 
MOVED file, apparently it blocks building the port otherwise.
If you decide to use it "officially", no credit is needed, it's a single 
one-off port.

Note: this would be my first working port, not everything might be perfect.
Note 2: disregard the file in there, it's just there to 
make my life easier :)
