If you are trying to install realplayer specifically, be aware that it has security vulnerabilities and has been hard masked.  For information on that see this bug:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40469

If you are still intrested in installing this, you will have to unmask it with /etc/portage/package.unmask.

Thanks,

William
