I'll try to put it in an easier way.

You have to put this line in make.conf:

Code:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"


That's where your custom ebuilds will live. You can put the line wherever you prefer, but make sure it's *before* the last line, which says "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" (that's the "source" line I was talking about before).

Now, go to /usr/local/portage. You have to uncompress the file you downloaded, I told you how to do it, but here it is again:

Code:
$ tar xf brother-overlay-20141007.tar.bz2


After that, if you run "ls" you should see a couple directories in there. If not, something went bad.

Now, edit /etc/portage/package.keywords. If /etc/portage/package.keywords, edit any file that's inside of it (it doesn't matter which one, just pick whatever sounds you right, or create a new one called "gentoo" or something, as said, it doesn't matter). Add this inside of it, if it's still not there:

Code:
net-print/brother-mfc-j435w-drivers ~amd64
media-gfx/brscan4 ~amd64


And try to emerge it again. It should work.

When I put that in my make.conf, I get errors when I emerge something say:
Code:

!!! Repository 'x-portage' is missing masters attribute in '/usr/local/portage/metadata/layout.conf'
!!! Set 'master = gentoo' in this file for future compatibility

That is just a warning. To fix it just do as it says and create that file with master = gentoo inside of it.
