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 regards Chris [1] -- gentoo-security@g.o mailing list
