Portage Overlay Ebuild Trick

Whenever you put down a new ebuild in your Portage overlay dir, you have to build a manifest for it to use... I can never remember the command for it, so I am putting it here for posterity:

ebuild filename digest

For instance, for a new ebuild called cedega-000133.ebuild, put it in the appropriate overlay dir, then type

ebuild cedega-000133.ebuild digest
