Sorry, I do not understand the point you are trying to make. Nethack has
an unresolved security bug, and if you want to install it anyway, put
it in your /etc/portage/package.unmask -- as described in
"man emerge". I do not see the gain by setting up a system that would
completely ignore *all* security-related package masks.
