It seems that dev-libs/libvc is hardmasked, in order to emerge it you 
will have to unmask the package:
echo "=dev-libs/libvc-003-r1" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

furthermore you need to set the testing keyword:
echo "dev-libs/libvc ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

After those modifications you should be able to emerge the package.


For an in-depth understanding of the above process have a look at the 
chapter "Mixing Software Branches" [1] within the gentoo handbook
