echo -e "=$1\t\t\t~amd64\n" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo -e "\n =$1" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask   
#emerge -1 -a =x11-base/xorg-x11-7.0
emerge -a =$1

First round I used the first three lines to see what packages were 
needed in order to compile xorg-x11, then commented out third line and 
added last one; now I use it to add the program I want.

It's noting to be really proud of, but it saves some typing, adds equal 
signs, unmask the packages... I told it was a little script ;-)

Did you perhaps mean to have the list generated? I currently have a 381 
lines /etc/portage/package.keywords and a 159 
lines /etc/portage/package.unmask, I can send them offlist...

The ebuild content is:

So now you can see where it came from :-)
