You can configure eclass override behavior via eclass-overrides in
/etc/portage/repos.conf, as documented in `man portage`. There are a
number of caveats to eclass-overrides, and that's why it's not the
default behavior. For example, beware that you'll need to set
PORTAGE_RSYNC_EXTRA_OPTS="--exclude=/metadata/cache" if your overlay
eclasses modify any ebuild metadata (as documented in `man portage`).
