Support @profile package set for bug #532224
Add support for a new @profile set which allows the profile to pull in additional packages that do not belong to the @system set. The motivation to have @profile separate from @system is that @system packages may have incomplete dependency specifications (due to long-standing Gentoo policy), and incomplete dependency specifications have deleterious effects on the ability of emerge --jobs to parallelize builds. So, unlike @system, packages added to @profile do not hurt emerge --jobs parallelization. Packages are added to the @profile set in the same way that they are added to the @system set, except that atoms in the @profile set are not preceded with a '*' character. Also, the @profile package set is only supported when 'profile-set' is listed in the layout.conf profile-formats field of the containing repository.
