Yes, this is normal for this package.

Because there hasn't been an official release of it yet, it is in
package.mask because the ebuild pulls from a live cvs tree.

man portage will  tell you how to unmask it so that you can use it. Be
warned, it may or may not work. If the ebuild is working, let us know..
