Add this string to /etc/portage/make.conf:

Code:
source /var/lib/layman/make.conf



And here is content of /var/lib/layman/make.conf:

Code:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="
/var/lib/layman/zugaina
/var/lib/layman/arcon
$PORTDIR_OVERLAY
"


in fact I didn't edit /var/lib/layman/make.conf by hand, it was made on overlays adding (via layman -a)

Yes, DO NOT edit the /var/lib/layman file. Layman uses that for adding overlays to PORTDIR_OVERLAY.

Just add the line to /etc/portage/make.conf like creaker showed you.
