I've also asked Gentoo to include MariaDB via their bug:

Robin Johnson has begun to accept my changes and will be added to Gentoo
proper in the future.
It is still in an experimental overlay, but will be merged to the main tree.

So, the above instructions are valid until Gentoo posts into the
official tree.
Then, Gentoo fans can simply "emerge mariadb".
