Layman is an "overlay" external repository management tool.
# emerge layman
make.conf must source laymans overlays for emerge to pull in packages from external sources.
# echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf
Fetch, and display a list of overlays:
# layman -L
Add an overlay to your system:
# layman -a <overlay name>
Delete an overlay from your system:
# layman -d <overlay name>

Sync a specific overlays ebuilds:
# layman -s <overlay name>
Sync all overlays:
# layman -S
Sync all overlays via eix:
