For me the keywords always look like that:

=www-client/mozilla-firefox-3.0.3 ~amd64
=dev-libs/nss-3.12 ~amd64



You also can use > or >= (I think) but you need a version number. Choose
~ for you system like ~x86 (You don't need to specify I think)

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.

=media-video/spca5xx
=media-video/spca5xx-20060501-r1 ~x86
<=media-video/spca5xx-20060501-r1 ~x86
>=media-video/spca5xx-20060501-r1 ~x86

funny thing is i got the masked zoneminder port to build using these in /etc/portage/package.keywords

www-misc/zoneminder
dev-perl/PHP-Serialization


ps i am using ccache could that have an effect?
