If the package is maked by keyword like (~x86) then you can unmask it using a file called /etc/portage/package.keywords and it would be done like
Code:

x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers ~x86
=media-video/nvidia-settings-1.0.20061102
<=x11-base/xorg-server-1.1.1-r3

The 1st nvidia-drivers statement unmasks all nvidia-drivers versions that are masked by keyword. nvidia-settings is unmasked by specific version and xorg-server you see everything less than or = to 1.1.1-r3 was unmasked.

If a package is masked by (package.mask) and you are sure you want to unmask it then you have to add it to /etc/portage/package.unmask also.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favour of the FAQ GF5: What are masked packages?
