How to make eix in Gentoo look good with the Solarized colourscheme

I found the solution in this post over at the Gentoo forums. The solution is to simply set the variable
SOLARIZED=true in your shell. You do this with the command
export SOLARIZED=true. If you want to make it permanent you just add it to your configuration file for your shell.
