The problem is not security, the problem is that there is no maintainer
for rolo and it's deps. Maintainer should unmask the package but seems
that nobody of gentoo developers want to maintain it and I can
understand them ;). rolo has dead upstream as there was no new releases
for more then 3 years. This means that to fix any bug maintainer has to
look into sources, and fix it by himself... No joy if you are not using
this application.

Thus currently the best solution is to unmask it locally as it was
already told you and may be even copy 
dev-libs/libvc
mail-client/mutt-vc-query
app-misc/rolo
into your local overlay, as if this situation persist rolo could be
removed from portage completely.

Regards,
Peter.
