emerge is the Gentoo package manager.

Brief HowTo:

1. Grab the ebuilds and related files into a directory: "git clone
2. Add the directory to your PORTDIR_OVERLAY in /etc/make.conf. e.g.
3. Copy the files from the distfiles directory in the repository to
/usr/portage/distfiles.  (This is for mariadb patches that differ from
Gentoo main.)
4. Add dev-db/mariadb to your /etc/portage/package.keywords and add any
optional features (USE flags) to your /etc/portage/package.use
5. emerge mariadb
