You can configure that yourself by setting ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64
amd64" in make.conf.

However, it's not generally recommended since when ~amd64-linux is
missing from KEYWORDS it means that it may not have been tested in a
amd64-linux prefix environment. Sometimes it will work, but it's also
common for such ebuilds to try and install files outside of $EPREFIX
which will cause them to abort before they are installed.

Also, if you use package.accept_keywords along with --autounmask-write,
then you'll have a list of packages that is convenient if you plan to
submit keyword requests.

In order to indicate that it has been tested in a prefix environment,
versus a non-prefix environment.
