hmmmm keywords are placed in the /etc/portage/package.keywords file right?
I have tried the additional combos below, but still cannot build the spca5xx port. The first one gives me invalid atom error the rest just give the package mask error mentioned in my first email.
funny thing is i got the masked zoneminder port to build using these in /etc/portage/package.keywords
ps i am using ccache could that have an effect?
