6 It's not a circular masking problem, mesa is package.mask'd, as in

11 You could add media-libs/mesa to /etc/portage/package.unmask, but that will
12 lead you into the (also package.mask'd) modularized X.
13 Modularized X is obviously not ready for unstable, and the version of mesa in
14 the tree depends on that modularized version to work.
16 I don't think you are going to get mesa installed without a fair bit of
17 trouble.
