1 Can anyone help me with the following?

5 Latest version available: 2.5.4a-r4
6 Latest version installed: 2.5.4a-r4

10 There is an -r5 ebuild in the portage dir. and this version is not masked,
11 so why isn't it listed in the search?
13 Almost the same with the xfree-4.2.1.ebuild. This one is masked but if I
14 unmask it, I still get the 4.2.0-r12 version listed.
16 When i try to give the 4.2.1 ebuild on the emerge command line I get the
17 following:
18 These are the packages that I would merge, in order.

22 emerge: all ebuilds that could satisfy ">=sys-devel/flex-2.5.4a-r5" (from
23 ebuild / x11-base/xfree-4.2.1 merge) have been masked.
25 I am confused. What does that mean and where is it masked?
