6 Depends on how the package is masked. If emerge says it's masked by
7 ~keyword, then you can force a build by doing
8 ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~alpha" emerge <package>
10 If it's masked by some other methid, you'll have to edit the KEYWORDS line
11 in the ebuild file. That file is in /usr/portage/<group>/<package-name> ,
12 under the name <package-name>-<version>.ebuild.
