Paludis doesn't allow unmasking of USE flags via user configuration,
since use masks aren't designed to be overridden (a use mask isn't like
a package mask, in that it's for a package that may or may not work --
it's for a use flag that will never work).

Having said that, you can do it by appending a custom profile to the
repo profiles setting.
