It means that it is masked in use.mask or package.use.mask In your case the file /usr/portage/profiles/default/linux/package.use.mask explains the reason.

In your case: Put into /etc/portage/profile/package.use.mask the line:
>=media-sound/pulseaudio-0.9.16_rc5 -oss
(as a "countermeasure" for the corresponding line in package.use.mask). Whether this will compile and work is a different question: You are on your own with that setting. Unmasking USE-flags is not supported by gentoo. Bug reports will probably be closed as INVALID.
