I grabbed the latest portage tree this evening (24 May) and see that mozilla rc3 is there. I have rc2 installed presently with no problems but when I attempt to merge/unmerge, I get an error about package,mask and that emerge cannot find the mozilla.rc3 build. I can see the files in net-www. Other ebuilds I got are working quite well like fluxbox.

I just recompiled mozilla rc2 to ensure that things are working.

Thanks for any help!
