Odd, sounds like a bad ebuild (no KEYWORDS var?) or a bugged portage (no
longer recognizes the special KEYWORDs).
On my system:
$ grep -i keyw /usr/portage/media-libs/ploticus/*.ebuild
so, it doesn't *look* like a bad ebuild.
First, check your local ebuilds, and make sure you don't have an
interfering overlay. Also, make sure you don't have two (or more)
media-libs/ploticus lines in your package.keywords. If that all checks
out, I suppose it could be a portage bug.
