NOTE: The advice given below is not recommended for working around
packages that are masked or lack sparc keywords. Specifically, if an
ebuild has a -sparc keyword, it is known the software is broken.
Chances are you didn't do it quite right. You'll probably want an
entry like "net-analyzer/snort ~x86" in package.keywords. If I add
this to /etc/portage/package.keywords on a sparc system with stable
keywords, I can now emerge snort-2.4.5.
